This detailed map depicts Minnesota with its counties named and in contrasting pastel colors. Topographical features are well noted, with major cities, towns, railroads (each stop noted), and water routes identified. Post Offices, islands, and Indian Reservations are also shown.
The two insets depict “N.E. Corner of State of MINNESOTA SHOWING COOK CO.” and “MINNEAPOLIS, ST. PAUL AND VICINITY”.
A very informative view of the area as it existed in the 1890’s.
