About this Item

Title

  • Minnesota, the empire state of the new North-West, the commercial, manufacturing and geographical centre of the American continent. Published by the Board of Immigration for the State of Minnesota ... Secretary: John W. Bond.

Summary

  • This 1878 pamphlet addresses itself to laboring and landless men, as well as to those of moderate means, who are seeking to escape the "tyrannies and thankless toil of the old world" and the overcrowded conditions and limited opportunities of regions in the eastern United States. It praises Minnesota's healthful climate and its network of railroads, its mineral resources, educational facilities, and demonstrated potential for agricultural production. There is specific information about the amount and location of public lands as well as the costs involved in homesteading. At the front of the book is a map of Minnesota townships and railroad routes.
