On This Date in Minnesota History: October 31

October 31 - November 2, 1958 – The grand opening of the Lindstrom Phillips 66 gas station designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Cloquet, Minn., was held on these dates. It is the only gas station that Wright designed.

“The station was added to the National Register of Historic Places on September 11, 1985, for its architectural significance.”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.


Discover your roots, and watch the branches of your family tree begin to grow.
