Sleepy Eye Area Historical Society reveals the 2018 Sleepy Eye ornament.

The board of directors for the Sleepy Eye Area Historical Society, the organization that operates the Depot Museum, wanted to launch the 2018 Sleepy Eye collectible ornament with a special event this year. When the board met in January, they chose a photograph of the Anton Steffen Brewery, taken in 1893, to feature on the 2018 ornament.

On Thursday, May 3, the historical society hosted a Business After Hours event for Chamber of Commerce members at the Depot Museum to reveal the ornament and hear from special guests Adam and Karlyn Armbruster, new owners of the PIX Theater building.
