New Point Cabin Exhibit – Dorothy Molter: Living in the Boundary Waters
In 2013, as part of its 20th anniversary celebration, the Dorothy Molter Museum unveiled a new exhibit in the Point Cabin: ”Dorothy Molter: Living in the Boundary Waters.”
By combining objects and photographs from the museum’s collection with quotes and clips from the 1987 documentary film of the same name, this exhibit illustrates how Dorothy Molter embodies the spirit and inspiration of the northwoods wilderness.
Funding for the exhibit was provided through a grant from the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board (IRRRB), as well as through generous private donations.
