Rubinstein, Sarah P. 1942-
Adult Nonfiction F607 .H59 2003

Comments  Summary  Contents

Summary: For more than 125 years Minnesotans have been marking the places where significant historic events occurred. This travel guide presents the locations and texts of 254 historic markers, 60 geologic markers, and 29 historic monuments in all corners of the state. The markers honour fur traders and settlers, explorers and miners, Civil War soldiers and entrepreneurs; they explain waterfalls and sand plains and glacial potholes. Some have stood for over a century, marking the sites of the Dakota War of 1862. Others, more recent, enhance the interstate highways with brief, informative histories of Red River trails, immigrant communities, and important industries. Each entry includes the location of the marker or monument along the state's highways and county roads. For the traveller's ease of use, the entries are grouped by region and by county and many photographs convey a sense of the history to be found at these places. This handy and informative guide is the perfect travelling companion for your next road trip.
