The Buckham Memorial Library has crowned the end of Faribault’s Central Avenue for over eighty years, but the story behind the landmark goes much further back and covers an extraordinary range--a story that takes place from Scotland to Vermont; a story of passion and of hope; a story of the anguish of the Civil War and the promises of a newborn city called Faribault; the story of Anna Mallary and Thomas Scott Buckham. Join Samuel Temple and Logan Ledman, in the fifteenth installment of 1855, on a compelling journey that will give you a new pride in that beautiful limestone building deep in Faribault’s downtown. This episode features performances from local actors Steve Lawler and Kaitlin Baumann Hohenstein. It was filmed at the Thomas Scott Buckham Memorial Library. Original music provided by Sam Dwyer.
