Temperance Hall in Cokato, Minnesota

From KFAI | Part of the 10,000 Fresh Voices series | 04:59

America's Temperance Movement arose from Protestant pulpits in the early 19th century, and took root among Minnesota's rural immigrant populations who eschewed alcohol and tobacco. KFAI producer Britt Aamodt traveled to Cokato, Minnesota to visit Temperance Hall--a community structure built in 1896. The hall engaged members in theater, gymnastics, boxing and more. It was the place to meet and flirt and fall in love--so long as you didn't touch a drop of the hard stuff. Today, the hall is the centerpiece of Temperance Corner, which also includes an old schoolhouse and an immigrant cabin, and plays host to popular seasonal festivals.

The Paramount Restoration

From KVSC | Part of the Untold Stories of Central Minnesota series | 30:26

The Paramount Theater in down town St. Cloud is one of our enduring community treasures. It first opened its doors on Christmas Eve in 1921 as the Sherman Theater and its stage has seen thousands of performances including Vaudeville, operas, rock concerts, Broadway road shows, movies, speeches, and, of course, wrestling matches. The Paramount, however, has not always been in the good shape that it is today. During the 1960’s through the 80’s, its state of disrepair nearly ended its existence, but a group of citizens and the city turned that fate around. Today’s news feature comes from the Arts & Cultural Heritage funded program, the Untold Stories of Central Minnesota Art, as producer Jeff Carmack sits down with the Paramount Arts Resource Trust Executive Director Tony Goddard to discuss the fascinating history of the Paramount and its restoration.
