Minnesota On The Map Traveling Exhibit

 

 

Today we all have an opportunity to see a traveling exhibit that features dozens of maps ranging from Louis Hennepin’s 1683 map of the upper Mississippi River Valley to a satellite map of Minnesota produced by NASA. It illustrates how maps have documented and helped influence our understanding of the State. 

 

This exhibition will be held at the Sherburne History Center at 10775 27th Ave SE, Becker from 3 to 4 pm TODAY!  Contact the Sherburne History Center at 763-262-4433 or visit www.sherburnehistorycenter.org for more information.

 

If you have a history buff or student studying Minnesota History or geography, this would be an important event to take in!

I love looking at the old maps and seeing how close they got with the primative instruments that they used to measure

I heard that they were a little disappointed, but the exhibit only lasted an hour....

Don, when possible we should all attend events pertaining to the history of our state.

These are important documents.  And, when you realize how difficult it was to make a map back then, you can really appreciate it.

I have a lot of maps.  State park maps, atlases and state maps.  Maps give me a way to envision where I want to go!

Hi Don -- put me in the nerd camp too -- judging by the comments here, it seems to be a pretty popular place.
