Trip to the Ramsey County Historical Society

Yesterday I went to the Ramsey County Historical Society in St. Paul, to try and finish up a little research I have been doing on Minnesota synagogues (yes, first mosques and now synagogues. Minnesota is a culturally diverse place!). The RCHS is located in the Landmark Center (a beautiful old building and its on the National Register of Historic Places) and “is a non-circulating collection documenting the history of Ramsey County and St. Paul. The library archives contain books, periodicals, city directories, maps, photographs, personal papers, business and organization records, architectural information and materials on clubs, schools, and churches” http://www.rchs.com/RCHSinfo.htm. I just saw a few items from their collection, but they are pretty cool and the people were really nice and helpful.
