La Crescent Area Historical Society

VISION STATEMENT

We will be recognized and respected for preserving the cultural heritage of the
La Crescent area. Our collection of artifacts and documents will be historically significant and accessible to the public. We will have the financial and material resources needed to house our collection. Our activities and events will involve many active volunteers, young and old, in collaboration with area businesses and organizations.

OUR CHANGING HIGHWAY 16 A NARRATIVE & VISUAL PRESENTATION by Geographer/Photographer Tobias Walther-Antonio
Since I-90 was built, Highway 16 has seen significant changes in population, travel-related businesses—accommodation, fuel, and eateries—and regional development. All of this has impacted communities such as La Crescent. This presentation will illustrate the changes with aerial imagery, data graphs, comparative photography, maps, historical details, and geographical facts.
