On This Date in Minnesota History: June 19

June 19, 1905 – C. H. Miles today received the first automobile that was ever in Bemidji, and the horseless vehicle is now at the Great Northern Depot.

Miles purchased the auto several months ago and has kept it at Hibbing, where he has large property interests. He decided, however, that the auto would be of more use to him in Bemidji than at the range town and shipped it to Bemidji with the result that it landed here safely today.

The Bemidji Daily Pioneer; “Miles Gets an Automobile. First Horseless Vehicle Owned by Bemidji Man Arrived Today.”; June 19, 1905; p. 3.
