Happy New Year and welcome to 2008. We have a new feature we will be running throughout 2008 – History in a Day.

We will be posting Minnesota historical events that have happened on each day. Each day has been researched by a high school class in Minnesota. We thank them for their help!

January 1, 1969

The Coast Guard closed Split Rock Lighthouse after 59 years of service. It became a state park.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
