    History

  • On May 11, 1858, Minnesota became the 32nd state in the United States.  Following the Civil War, settlers flocked to the area to farm and log.  The economy started to boom, and the state became known as the ‘milling  capital of the world’. The discovery of ore in the northern part of the  state also fueled its popularity. Sadly, the Great Depression pushed the  state into a dramatic economic downturn, and it would not recover until  after the World War. Soon, technology moved into Minnesota with early computer companies like Cray, Sperry Randy, and Control Data  taking up residence. The state’s Twin Cities also became a hub for arts  and culture.
