Stay In This Civil War-Era Cabin In Minnesota, And You’ll Feel Like You’ve Stepped Back Into The 1800s
Minnesota became a state on May 11, 1858. The state is more than 160 years old, and there are many interesting sites where you can see Minnesota history up close. But few of these attractions let you experience what daily life was like during Minnesota’s early days. However, there are some. For example, there’s a rustic cabin in Long Prairie, Minnesota, that dates back to the days just after the Civil War. Book a stay overnight in this cabin for a small glimpse of what it might have been like to live in Minnesota during the 1860s. As soon as you step inside, you’ll feel like you’ve traveled back nearly two centuries. Read on to see what you’ll find when you visit the Maynard Cabin:
