Trent Jonas came to Minnesota to attend college - and never left. He's a Twin Cities-based writer with a BA in English and a MFA in creative writing, a Minnesota Master Naturalist, and the proud father of two adult children. With more than a decade of freelance writing experience under his belt, Trent is often out exploring his favorite topics: Minnesota's woods, lakes, and trails. Rhubarb pie is his weakness, so discovering new diners is also a passion.
Although the small town of Mendota has fewer than 200 residents and only a couple of stoplights, it boasts nearly a dozen historical markers and sites, giving it, perhaps, the highest concentration of historical landmarks in Minnesota.
After you’ve spent some time exploring Mendota and its history, be sure to visit the rest of Fort Snelling State Park, another gorgeous site steeped in Minnesota History. Have you had a chance to visit Mendota? Let us know in the comments.
