This page is dedicated to mapping and rediscovering the history of Minnesota's historic trunk highways.  If this is your first time here, I suggest taking a look at the site information for some background, the methods and sources I use to do my research, and my reasons for undertaking this project. For some basic information on Minnesota's Trunk Highway System, check out the Minnesota Highway Primer.
