Museums of Minnesota

Readers of H-Rural may be interested in some of the posts appearing lately in the Museums of Minnesota blog on H-Midwest. Many of them are coming from county historical societies in the state. Curators and archivists have been sharing documents and photos from their collections that tell histories from the area that are largely tales of rural life in the upper Midwest.
