MNopedia volunteers have been busy this year

By: Rebekah Bjork | May 24, 2016
  • The MNopdedia volunteer team has logged more than 762 hours so far this fiscal year and some hours are still to be recorded!
  • Rick turned in his first article on G.K. Warren, the first St. Paul District Commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is working on revisions.
  • Mary has turned in her first article on the Lake Vermilion-Soudan Underground Mine State Park and is in the editing process. Mary managed to get a number of beautiful photographs from the Park/DNR, with permissions to use them - quite a challenge!
  • Aaron has submitted two articles, one on the Minneapolis, Northfield, and Southern Railway, and one on the Minneapolis Great Northern Union Depot.
  • Sarah's article on the Milwaukee Avenue Historic District was published on April 13, and was picked up by MinnPost as a featured article.
  • Janet, Anja, and Catherine have been checking in regularly and have reported great progress on some very interesting research. Watch MNopedia for more, new articles!
