On This Date in Minnesota History: March 6

March 6, 1971 – “Northern States Power Company’s (NSP) nuclear power plant at Monticello began generating electricity at 2:30 a.m. [on this date] – five years after NSP publicly announced that it would apply for an Atomic Energy Commission permit to build the $100 million plant.”

Monticello Times; “Nuclear plant now produces power”; March 11, 1971; 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.
