  • Frontier Foundations: the History of Early Moorhead

    Frontier Foundations is a  traveling exhibit of 11 panels on Early Moorhead. The exhibit script was initiated by students in a History 390: Interpretive History course taught by Jayme Joos (Spring 2015) and then completed through a Legacy (Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund) grant awarded to Rinita Dalan and Jayme Joos (Anthropology and Earth Science) that covered additional research and writing by Jayme Joos and copyright permissions for the images. The panels were printed with funds from the Minnesota Historical Society.

    The exhibit is currently on display at the Hjemkmost Center, Moorhead MN. The exhibit is available for Loan.
