[ARCHIVED] May Kids Kraft: “Ring Ring!”

SCHS Ring Ring

The first telegraph was sent by Samuel Morse on May 24, 1844. To celebrate the birth of instant communication, the Scott County Historical Society is having a special telephone themed Kids Kraft! Come try telephones from different eras in the “Tools of The Trade” exhibit. Afterwards, you will have the chance make your own sting-and-cup telephone and practice your Morse code! Finally, gather in the galleries to hear the story “Jackrabbit McCabe and the Electric Telegraph” by Lucy Rozier. This event will take place on Saturday, May 18 from 10:30-11:15 AM at the Scott County Historical Society.

As always, Kids Kraft is free, but space is limited. Please register at or by calling 952-445-0378. Kids Kraft happens at SCHS monthly on Saturdays. The program introduces children to museums, promotes literacy, and allows young people to practice “old fashioned” hands on skills. 

The Scott County Historical Society is located at 235 Fuller Street South, Shakopee, MN 55379, three blocks south of the intersection of Co. Rd. 101 and Fuller Street. All inquiries are welcome: 952-445-0378 or [email protected].   Visit  them online at
