On This Date in Minnesota History: June 20

June 20, 1955 – “After a plan [for Met Stadium] by architects Thorshov & Cerny won approval, groundbreaking was scheduled to begin [on this date]. The construction was almost delayed, however, when the owners of the property on which the [Met] stadium would be built on began a protest, claiming they had not yet been paid. One of these owners created a barricade of farm equipment along his property line that ran directly through where the stadium's infield would be. The dispute was settled in time for the groundbreaking to move forward as planned.”

Met Stadium, Bloomington, Minn.

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 MNHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
