The National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places today unveiled their newest online travel itinerary: Pipestone, Minnesota, featuring 30 historic places in Pipestone County. Located in the southwest corner of Minnesota, this area reflects a rich history of Native American quarrying, prosperity brought by the railroad and mining enterprises, and a distinctive natural landscape. The itinerary highlights the history of the region, from the sacred quarries of the Yankton Dakota, to architecturally stunning buildings constructed with the local red stone, which today still characterizes the city of Pipestone, as well as the near-by towns of Ihlen and Jasper. The importance of this city was recently recognized by the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota in May 2001 when Pipestone was designated as one of the 10 most endangered historic properties in the state. Check out Pipestone, Minnesota, and neighboring Ihlen and Jasper, all cities which have prospered from the quarrying and transportation of the red rock. From natural wonders painted by American artist George Catlin (1796-1872) to the region which inspired Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem, "Hiawatha," written in 1855, the online travel itinerary of southwestern Minnesota's treasures is worth a visit!
