(CARROLL, Iowa) – The State Historical Society of Iowa and Iowa Historical Foundation boards of directors and staff will tour Storm Lake, meet with local leaders, and hold their respective board meetings during a two-day visit this week.

The group of about 30 will arrive at the Sail Inn Thursday morning before going to the Buena Vista County Historical Museum to meet with Buena Vista University Professor Bill Feis and Project Awaysis Director Mike Wilson, who is expected to discuss the $28 million destination park being developed on the shores of Storm Lake.

SHSI will hold its board meeting 1-5 p.m. Thursday at the Buena Vista County Historical Museum, followed by a reception, a bus tour of Storm Lake and dinner at BozWellz. The SHSI board meeting is free and open to the public.

The private, non-profit Iowa Historical Foundation board will meet Friday at the Buena Vista County Historical Museum to discuss its fiscal year in review and set goals for the support it provides the State Historical Society.
