On This Date in Minnesota History: January 5

January 5, 1911 – This morning a fire in Tower, Minn., did approximately $15,000 worth of damage, and for a time, the entire town was threatened with destruction. A row of frame structures, which included those occupied by the Tower News, John Hickey’s saloon, Kearn Martella’s confectionery, Jalmer Pearson’s barber shop and a vacant store, was burned.

The Minneapolis Morning Tribune; “Bad Fire in Tower”; Jan. 6, 1911; p. 1.


If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including: census records, birth records, death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records. I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MHS records. Both short searches and family history reports.
