GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - The Stuhr Museum took people on a walk through history on Saturday during their 2nd annual Immigrant Story event.

They partnered with the Multicultural Coalition in Grand Island to educate people on the impacts immigrants have had on the state and on the country.

The event started with a virtual tour describing immigrants role in the suffrage movement, sugar beet industry, and their many other contributions.

“The first pioneers who came to our community, 30 German settlers, and they were immigrants to this community and to this country, Stuhr Museum’s Executive Director Chris Hochstetler said. "They did really dynamic things and built this wonderful community full of productivity, full of advancements.”

They also hosted a virtual trivia night on how to become a citizen. The whole event happened virtually on the Multicultural Coalition’s Facebook page.
