What Minnesota Means to Me?
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 with your thoughts.

One of our wonderful volunteers made this observation.

"When 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. "


From RCHS board member Bruce Olson

"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."
