This exhibit features three Lewiston family run businesses: Leblanc Cleaners, Lepage Bakeries, and Bonneau Market. These businesses met the most basic needs of their working class clients. They also established networks across borders, encouraged other French-speakers to come to the Twin Cities, and created opportunities by mentoring other Franco-Americans.
The exhibit will be on view from March-September 2020. An exhibit opening reception scheduled for March 19th is postponed due to virus prevention efforts.
