New Manager at Brown County Historical Society
Brown County History Museum, Theresa Keaveny, Willkommen

The Brown County Historical Society has hired a new office manager, and the Willkommen Committee stopped by to welcome her.  Theresa Keaveny grew up on a farm close to Birch Coulee near Morton.  She attended the College of St. Benedict’s and then obtained her masters in social work from the University of Minnesota, Duluth.  She worked for a number of years in Redwood Falls and Granite Falls.  Most recently, she has been in Montana, where she was employed as the executive director for the Montana Conservation Voters for 16 years.  Family and friends brought her back to Minnesota and to the New Ulm area.  Theresa says she was heading to the post office after she relocated here and stumbled upon the museum!  She stayed for a tour and found out about the position opening.  Bob Burgess, Museum Director, says they are happy to have her and that her past work with non-profits will be a valuable resource for the Museum.  Welcome, Theresa!
