Here at the Freeborn County Historical Museum we host several events throughout the year.  
Eddie Cochran Weekend June 2017
In 1956 Eddie transitioned from country music to rock 'n roll. In 1957 Eddie’s version of “Sitting in the
Balcony” became his first hit. Eddie's most famous hit was "Summertime Blues" in 1958 and was co‐
written with Jerry Capeheart. “Summertime Blues“ made quite an impact in the late 50’s.

30th Annual Eddie Cochran Car Show will be hosted in downtown Albert Lea (instead of at fairgrounds)
