Like social media, the industrialization of transportation changed and shaped how we communicate and interact with each other, both as communities and as individuals. Railroads and automobiles took Americans away from foot travel and canoe transport, effectively changing national consciousness.

Jan. 7 – “One Shoe: The original mode of transportation – foot travel!” – We’ve all heard the stories, “uphill both ways during a blizzard”, but what was it really like? Walking used to be an everyday part of life, from mailing a letter to going fishing – learn more about early local foot travel with host Amanda Seim (Executive Director of the Runestone Museum Foundation).

 

Jan. 14 – “Canoes: Minnesota’s earliest roads were waterways!” – Before highway mile markers, travelers used to measure their trip by portages – where they had to carry their canoes and packs over land to the next river or lake. Join host Kaci Johnson (Director of Communications and Programming at the Legacy of the Lakes Museum) and Amanda Seim as we explore what travel was like on the water.

 

You may register for the 3-Session Series or an individual session within this series. If you are a member of any of the partnering museums listed below, please note that you have a reduced individual session price available.
