TTT1732 August 7 Neighborhood History
Dayton’s Bluff in St. Paul and Phillips in Minneapolis share a rich history of immigration — a process of change and community building that continues today. In Phillips, local historian Susan Hunter-Weir tells the stories of departed residents buried in the Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Memorial Cemetery. Over in Dayton’s Bluff, Steve Trimble shares the untold and under-told stories of life on St. Paul’s East Side. What difference do stories make? Judge for yourself. Read Susan and Steve’s monthly columns at: www.alleynews.org and www.daytonsbluffdistrictforum.org.
