Historic Andrew Peterson Farmstead Receives Jeffris Family Foundation Grant


The Carver County Historical Society is honored to receive a challenge grant from the Jeffris Family Foundation to fund the rehabilitation of the Andrew Peterson Farmhouse in Waconia, MN. The grant is for $250,000 and will be awarded after the CCHS raises $500,000. The Historic Andrew Peterson Farmstead, located at 8060 Highway 5, Waconia, MN,
is open by appointment and for special events May through October. Andrew Peterson was known for his horticul- ture work with apple trees, the loca- tion of the first Swedish Baptist Church and for his historically significant dia- ries which were used as a primary source for Wilhelm Moberg while writ- ing his Emigrant book series.

The Jeffris Family Foundation was established in 1979 by Bruce and Eleanor Jeffris, and their son Tom. The Foundation assists the development of historic sites for non-profit organiza- tions in small towns and cities in the eight states of the Midwest. For more information contact Wendy Petersen Biorn at 952-442-4234 or wbiorn@co.carver.mn.us.
