There’s No Other Historical Landmark In Minnesota Quite Like This 300-Year-Old Tree
It’s easy to imagine that the Land of 10,000 Lakes began with statehood in 1858. But Minnesota has a much longer history that began well before European explorers and fur traders settled the area. Much of that history is centered on the Native American tribes that first populated the area. There are still some places where it is possible to learn about the history of these people. One of the best is at Grand Portage National Monument. It is here that nature and history collide.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
