An interpretive exhibit was created with table displays using historically factual text and illustrative photographs and a short play was developed to tell the story of how the dam was built and its affect on the local people and economy. The exhibit counters negative impressions about the dam and provides little known information to the public. Research included files, papers and photographs from the BECHS, a local appeal in newspapers and on radio for personal accounts, Blue Earth county information and information from companies involved in the reconstruction of the dam in the 1980's.
