The History of Blaine . . . Hidden No Longer!
We are excited to offer our book "Forward: The Hidden History of Blaine" for sale. The book was nearly a decade in the making - we hope you will enjoy learning about what makes Blaine . . . well, Blaine.
Blaine has a fascinating story . . . much of it untold. The events, places and people responsible for turning a humble farming community into one of the major cities in Minnesota have been largely overlooked.
Richly illustrated with more than 250 photos, maps and drawings from Blaine's first 140 years, this account explores just some of the elements that brought the city into the 21st Century:
* Land speculators and pioneer settlers
* Transition from Township to Village to City
* Schools, places of worship and public buildings
* Agricultural history
* Neighborhoods, services and businesses
* Tracking Blaine's changing landscape
The book is a fundraiser for the Blaine Historical Society and only available through this site - shipped via US Mail. Your purchase helps us collect and share new stories for Blaine.
Your purchase helps us gather, save and share the stories of Blaine for future generations. We even hope to establish a small museum someday.
