Do a donut at Dorothy’s

Fans of the late Dorothy Molter are invited to gather from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Sunday for “Donuts at Dorothy’s,” a free community event celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Dorothy Molter Museum in Ely.

Molter lived for many years in a cabin on Knife Lake in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. After her death, her cabins were moved to Ely, where they serve as a museum. Sunday’s events will include tours of Dorothy’s cabins, donuts and coffee, and a new exhibit called “Dorothy Molter: Living in the Boundary Waters.”

Visitors will also get a rare viewing of Molter’s original spiral-bound guest books, which chronicle 30 years of visitors to her home.
The museum is at the east end of Ely on Minnesota Highway 169 (Sheridan Street). For information, call (218) 365-4451.
