WILLMAR -- A groundbreaking ceremony for a $272,358 addition to the Kandiyohi County Historical Society's Museum in Willmar will take place today at 1 p.m. in front of the museum.

Pre-construction preparation began on Monday when the one-room school was moved to another area on the site to make room for the addition, said Jill Wohnoutka, director of the museum.

Once the ground is officially broken the project will begin in earnest and could be completed by February or March.
