28oct7:00 pm9:00 pmThe Slaveholders of Payne-Phalen


Event Details

Did you know slavery’s reach into Minnesota extended well beyond Dred Scott at Fort Snelling?

From the 1840s through the end of the Civil War, leading Minnesotans invited slaveholders and their wealth into the free territory and free state of Minnesota. Slaveholders’ wealth was invested in some of the state’s most significant institutions and fueled the state’s growth.

Join Dr. Christopher Lehman at MHC to learn more about the complex history of the Payne-Phalen neighborhood and how it is one of Minnesota’s few surviving relics of the state’s former business ties to slave-holding Southerners.
