The Minnesota Digital Library is pleased to announce an additional contribution to the Kanabec County Historical Society's colleciton in Minnesota Reflections. This new contribution increases the Kanabec County Historical Society's collection by more than 30%.

Also included are images of logging along the Ann River as well as images of sawmills and lumber operations in Mora, Minnesota. 

The Kanabec County Historical Society, located in Mora, Minnesota, preserves and maintains the history of our county. We collect three-dimensional objects, photographs, newspapers, birth, death, and marriage records. Together these collections record the stories of our citizens. The items contributed by the Kanabec County Historical Society to the Minnesota Digital Library depict life in east central Minnesota.
