  1. Searching for info (pictrues and architecural drawings) for the Minnesota Power Company’s dam and power station, the milling facilities (Northwestern and Gopher State – were they still there in 1948 and if not, when were they abandoned)), the Hennepin Paper Company, and, the NP Depot in Little Falls, Minnesota, in 1948 (actuallly, anything from 1945 to 1950) for modeling on my model raiulroad layout.

  2. John – We have photos in our collections for all of those sites, however I’m not sure if we have them around your required dates. Because of the complexity of your request and the time it will take to fill it, we need to have you place a formal research request via email ( or phone (320-632-4007).

    Please see our Fees & Policies page for our staff research fees:

    If you can visit the museum, the only fee for research is for any copies you request.

    We look forward to hearing from you.
