St. Croix River – History in the News

September 23, 2009

The history of the St. Croix River is in the news this week. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported this morning that an organization called Friends of the St. Croix Boom Site is urging the state Department of Natural Resources to transfer ownership of the property to the National Park Service. The St. Croix Boom is a National Historic Landmark (one of twenty-three NHLs in Minnesota) due to its significance as a historic logging resource.

Meanwhile, the Saint Paul Pioneer Press has a feature article about a new book, North Woods River: The St. Croix River in Upper Midwest History, and Spirit of the St. Croix Days are this weekend in Hudson, Wisconsin.
