Promoting History In Northwestern Minnesota

Posted: Updated:

  Our past defines who we are as Americans. And now, historical organizations from across northwestern have banded together to form "Minnesota's Historic Northwest.

  Twelve counties have now formed a consortium called, "Minnesota's Historic Northwest".

Jerry  Amiot: "Hidden jewels… and more people need to be aware of what's here and get out and see what's been saved from the past."

  It's all part of an effort to make us more aware of places right in our own backyards, like the Polk County Museum here in Crookston.

  It not only has displays, it has the people to tell us the details of our heritage.

Anne Muir: "You know what, there wasn't a lot of complaints. You didn't go back. That usually wasn't an option. The option was… if you make this forward move, you're going to stick it out or you're going to move forward somewhere else."

  The stories of our European ancestors, who settled here,   are the stories of what made Americans, who we are today.

Anne Muir: "We always want to succeed and we don't want to go home if we're not at our best. So, when folks come home, it's usually to have a little bit of those bragging rights."

  The consortium has already pooled its resources to publish a book detailing the history of northwestern Minnesota.  And now it's working to promote its museums and historical events across the region that are happening all summer long.
