Event Details

This Sunday is an historical day in Mankato, as the 100th Anniversary of the WWI Armistice will be recognized.
The most interesting is that the First Presbyterian Church in Mankato will be ringing its bell at “the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day, on the eleventh day.” This church bell was also rang 100 years ago, at the same church location. First Presbyterian is Mankato’s oldest congregation. The bell arrived here in 1857 and has made the rounds as the church made the locations rounds here in Mankato before it settled into its current location.
