While not nearly as sexy as as their Victorian cousins, these houses built by early Minnesota settlers from the days when Minnesota was a territory and a young state are as historical if not even more so. These were houses built while most of Minnesota was still wilderness and finding skilled labor was difficult if not impossible, where sometimes if you wanted a shelter you had to build it yourself.

Help find and document the remaining pioneer houses built from before the end of the Civil War (1865).


This project is part of the Minnesota Sesquicentennial Celebration.
