Our work also appears in print:
- The Minnesota Department of Transportation commissioned Charlene to write a history of the historic Stillwater lift bridge spanning the Saint Croix River between Minnesota and Wisconsin. The Saga of the Stillwater Lift Bridge: A Preservation Case Study was published in 2019. Download a copy from the department’s website (PDF 15 MB) or purchase a hard copy from the Minnesota Department of Administration’s bookstore.
- Montana, The Magazine of Western History published Charlene’s article, “A Mid-Century Monolith,” about the fascinating history of the Hungry Horse Project.
And the press covers works-in-progress and celebrates completed projects — like the publication of the Stillwater bridge book and the gala opening of the NorShor Theatre in Duluth.
