Sesquicentennial Display

Filed under: What's New — Lori Williamson @ 11:14 am


Now on view in the Library Lobby is Founding Documents of Our State: Minnesota at 150 Years. Highlights include Minnesota’s two (count them, two) original Constitutions; a territorial legislator’s desk from 1853 (shown above); a map from 1857 (also above); Seth Eastman’s design for the territorial seal; and an original newspaper from when statehood was declared. This will be up until June 23, 2008.
