Minnesota History: Building A Legacy

Search All Projects

Partners: Olmsted County Historical Society and Zumbro Watershed Partnership. The Zumbro River in Southeastern Minnesota is an important part of America's river history. This project  seeks to collect and research historical and environmental data on the river to prepare for the creation of an environmental history.  The project will observe and identify how human actions and policies have affected the Zumbro and its communities, and also how the river has shaped the human landscape. What makes this river system unique are the stories of the individuals and industries that grew up along its banks, among them, international giants like the Mayo Clinic and IBM.
