On This Date in Minnesota History: March 12

March 12, 1914 – Fire at Bagley, Minn., shortly after 1:00 this morning, destroyed the Bagley Electric Light and Water Plant. The total loss amounted to approximately $12,000. The origin of the fire is not known, but it is believed to have started in the boiler too.

The Bemidji Daily Pioneer; “Plant Burns At Bagley”; March 12, 1914; 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 MNHS records. Both short searches and family history reports available.
