The Minnesota Digital Library is pleased to announce a new addition to the Northfield Historical Society's growing collection - a new ledger book which documents the city of Northfield's City Council Meeting Minutes from July 1917 through December 1928. This ledger book contains information on city business, decisions made, and general city progress.
The Northfield Historical Society, located in historic downtown Northfield, Minnesota, was founded in 1975 and is committed to being the primary community resource that honors, preserves and interprets Northfield's unique place in history, building a bridge from its past to its future. The images submitted to Minnesota Reflections showcase Northfield history from the early 1850s to the late 1940s. The images look at historic downtown Northfield, some early pioneers in Northfield, the attempted raid by the James-Younger Gang, and St. Olaf College and Carleton College. There are some amazing weather pictures including a snow storm in 1888 that dumped three feet of snow in Northfield.
