Finding boxes full of history in Burnsville

The new Burnsville Historical Society found some noteworthy tidbits in boxes of old documents.

“There are a lot of interesting stories about how things happened and where they are,” said Len Nachman, one of the group’s organizers. “It’s documented in bits and pieces.”

Two hours and nine boxes later they had unearthed photos of County Road 42 back when it was gravel and Burnsville Center in the mid-1970s when it was the lone development in a field.
