This Is What Minnesota Looked Like 100 Years Ago… It May Surprise You

What do you think Minnesota may have looked like 100 years ago? It’s amazing to look back at the history of Minnesota and see how much has changed, and in some cases what has stood the test of time. Looking back nearly a century ago, it’s interesting to see the same places we know and love today in a new (or rather, old) light. From spectacular buildings to the old mining areas, here’s a unique glimpse into the past of the land of 10,000 lakes.

Is this what you thought Minnesota would look like 100 years ago? How did you picture it?
