The public is invited to join The Ottawa Historians with the Le Sueur County Historical Society to celebrate their 160th anniversary on Sunday, September 15 at 12:30 p.m. The historic Ottawa Stone Church, located at 39024 Whittier St. in Le Sueur, is one of the oldest Methodist churches in the State. It is one of seven native limestone buildings remaining in the village dating back to the mid 1800's. All seven buildings are on the National Register of Historic places.

The event will include a Prayer service led by Rev. Jason Lang and musician Eric Smith, from Word of Life Church, Le Sueur.  There will be a Harvest (Potluck) Picnic at Bur Oak Park in Ottawa at 1 p.m., located at 38842 Exchange St. Road, Le Sueur. In case of inclement weather, they will gather in the Ottawa Town Hall. Eating utensils, cups, plates, etc. and beverages will be provided. Personal lawn chairs and card/folding tables are welcome for the picnic.

Join in this Special Anniversary Celebration to continue this Historic Community Tradition.
