Dewey Radke House

The Board of Directors of the Friends of the Dewey Radke House maintain their commitment to support historic sites in Morrison County – naming the TOP 3 MOST ENDANGERED SITES IN MORRISON COUNTY

Little Falls, MN – The Friends of the Dewey Radke House Board of Directors and supporters met on Wednesday, October 19, 2011 and agreed to continue their commitment to support historic sites in Morrison County. The newly elected President, Brian-Paul Crowder, stated, “Since the Dewey Radke House was tragically destroyed by the City Council of Little Falls, more awareness of historic treasures needs to take place and the Board of the Friends of Dewey Radke House should use their resources to preserve and protect these sites.”

A motion was made to adopt a new mission statement: To raise awareness of the Dewey Trust and to raise awareness of other endangered historic properties in Morrison County. The motion passed unanimously.

The Board also named the TOP 3 MOST ENDANGERED SITES IN MORRISON COUNTY: #1 The Dewey Radke Barn located on the property of the now-destroyed Dewey Radke House; #2 Linden Hill of Little Falls; and #3 the Darling Church located just off Highway 10 between Randall and Little Falls.

The Friends of the Dewey-Radke Board is made up of: Brian-Paul Crowder, President; Pamela Wolters, Vice President; Rachel Flogstad-Heise, Secretary; Joyce Crowder, Treasurer; and members Sister Dorothy Ann, Diane Gohl, Ginny Given, Rosemary Finch and Chris Grams.

The Friends of the Dewey-Radke House, Inc. is a 501(c)3 charitable organization devoted to preserving the community’s traditions, architecture, and appearance. Meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 4PM at The Royal Café in Little Falls. All are welcome.
