March being Women’s History Month it seemed appropriate to start off the month noting a significant settler and educator from Sherburne County: Grace Craig.
|Grace Craig circa 1940|
Born when the settlement of Orrock Township remained in its infancy, Grace Craig lived for eighty-two years. Through several wars and multiple economic crisis, she witnessed the development of the county and contributed as an early settler of Sherburne county. She also exhibited the independence and self-assurance demanded of early settlers in Sherburne County. Kicking off Women’s History month with a true pioneer seems appropriate.
