Upcoming Historical Articles

My recent posts have been a bit delirious; loads of snow and cabin fever has taken it’s toll on my psyche. My next post will be filled with historical content. Authentic, and of course esoteric.
I have recently purchased an out-of-print,signed copy of “100 Years In Excelsior” published in 1953. The author was Excelsior resident Daisy Ellen Dillman. Somehow I have the impression that it was her personal copy. The book is lovingly written and provides first and second hand knowledge with documentation of the founding of Excelsior. Some photos.
Also, stuck within the pages of the book was an odd, 1953 Minneapolis newspaper clipping about a Excelsior bank sting.
