Minnesota celebrates its sesquicentennial in 2008. One of the
questions visitors to the Minnesota Historical Society website
were asked to respond to was, "What Minnesota means to me."
Each person, whether a transplant or one who grew up in our
wonderful state has an
opinion. We thought it would be wonderful to share some of our
county residents thoughts on what Minnesota means to them.
Sit back and enjoy the many reasons why we think we live in the
best state in the United States.
We welcome your
comments on what Minnesota means to you to be placed on our
website. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your thoughts.
One of our wonderful volunteers made this observation.
I was asked this question, my mind immediately went to Fort
Snelling. What a hub of history it was. If walls could talk we
would be amazed at all they'd tell. Oh, some of it would
disappoint us. Recently they were host to veterans, who were
served in the dining hall.
"The latest, and this thrills me, is the ox cart trek from
Pembina ND to St. Paul. Our little family was there in 1958 when
Delmar Hagen and his ox cart were at the celebration. They even
had a Pow Wow. "
"Minnesota represents the honest and good
work ethic of most Minnesotans. Clean air and water. I'm proud to be
from a leading agriculture state. I am happy to live in a
community where people live together and get along, where the crime
is rate is low and jobs are plentiful."
