The Nicollet County Historical Society and Saint Peter Community and Family Education present our 13th season of documentary films! These documentaries inform, challenge ideas, and create conversation. This fall, our films will not be shown in person. Instead, we are providing the links for you to view these films online for free at home. After watching each film, we encourage you to participate in an online discussion in the Documentary Film Series Discussion Page on NCHS’s Facebook page.
