Minnesota  State Archives

Recent State Archives Acquisitions: October 2020

Background Information

A collecting priority of the State Archives is to document the Minnesota State Legislature, and fulfilling that goal is the transfer of House of Representatives bills, resolutions and concurrent resolutions for the 2017-2018 legislative session, and house bills for the 2017 special session. The records continue an existing set of records dating from 1957.

Records useful for local history research, and to document growth and development of Twin Cities suburbia and Greater Minnesota are reflected in local government records added this month to the State Archives. Received from Chisago County are highway department annual reports dated 1960-2008 which help document this ever growing and developing Minnesota county. An individual donated published records and reports (dated 1995-2009) of the City of Roseville which reflect the growth and expansion of this major metropolitan suburb; the records are an addition to other City of Roseville records preserved in the State Archives.

Another individual donated records, primarily student-related records (dated 1893-1964), of a now defunct Wabasha County school district previously located in Lake Township south of Lake City. Also included in the donation are annual reports (dated 1954-1965) of the Wabasha County Superintendent of Schools. Besides their value for local history research, the records are very useful for family history research. The annual reports complement other Wabasha County Superintendent of Schools' records preserved in the State Archives.
