The building that housed Jerry's Supper Club is going through a transformation with new owners, amid even more future construction in downtown Owatonna for a streetscape project. Part of the history of Jerry's Supper Club would be the mural that adorned a portion of those walls that helped to celebrate some of the best memories you had. That mural won't be apart of what is to come of the former supper club building when it reopens, so instead of losing a piece of history, it is being donated to the Steele County Historical Society for preservation.

In a post to social media this week the Steele County Historical Society announced the acquisition of the mural and put out a call to raise funds to get the mural preserved.

The post reads in part:

"The Steele County Historical Society will be receiving the mural to preserve and display in our History Center! We are working with the owner of the building now and will be receiving the mural in the very near future.

This donation, however was completely unexpected and is rather expensive for our already tight budget. We are therefore seeking community support to help us raise the funds needed to hang the mural in our atrium as well as produce interpretive signage to help tell the story of Jerry’s and the mural. Please consider donating to this cause so that we can properly hang and care for this mural for generations to come."

The goal is to raise $4,000, so far as of this morning, the project has raised $825. If you'd like to donate to the project you can head here to make that donation.
