MCHS has gone through another round of digitization through the Minnesota Digital Library. We chose four booklets to have digitized. All were related to boosterism – trying to get people to move to Morrison County by touting our natural resources and other amenities. The booklets we chose were the following:
Little Falls, Minnesota: Its Present and Future
Morrison County, Minnesota: Its Advantages and Prospects
Morrison County, Minnesota: The Domain of Better Farms
Nichols’ Headlight: Souvenir of Little Falls and Morrison County, Minnesota
These documents, which have been scanned in full and appear on the Minnesota Reflections website, join the 1892 plat book that is already online. To view them, simply go to Minnesota Reflections and select the option to browse “by collection.” A screen will come up with the collections listed by institution. Select the letter “M” at the top of the screen to go directly to institutions beginning with that letter. Scroll down to the Morrison County Historical Society and select the “view the collection” link.
