The Shakopee Story

Coller, Julius A
This extensive volume on the history of Shakopee spans the first hundred years of the town's existence, from 1851 to 1958. Brief introductory chapters examine the Minnesota River Valley, its exploration, and early inhabitants prior to the founding of Shakopee, while the bulk of the book describes the formation and development of the town. Sources are provided for each chapter, and numerous photographs illustrate the text. Appendices include information on the Shakopee tribe, profiles of individuals, town population figures, a chronology, and a bibliography.
