The exhibit and the accompaning interpreatation was developed by archeologists Christy Hohman-Caine and Grant Goltz. The history begins in the summer of 1836 when Joseph Nicollet was searching for the source of the Mississippi River. He set out from Fort Snelling, guided by two Ojibwe men. He arrived at Lake Roosevelt on the future Cuyuna Range, the night of Aug. 15 to set up camp and make astronomical observations. From Nicollet’s journal, he camped part way up the western short.

To scheudle the exhibit for a group, school or organization, contact the Cuyuna Iron Range Heritage Network office at (218) 545-1166 or Kay at (218) 546-5996.

The project was made possible by the Arts and Cultural Heritage fune through a vote of Minnesotans on No. 4, 2008. It has been administered by the Minnesota Historical Society.
