February 27, 1868

Thomas Lowry is born in Logan County, Illinois on Feb 27th. After arriving in Minneapolis in 1868 Lowry would play an instrumental role in establishing the Twin Cities Streetcar system. He died in 1909.

Thanks to Tim Holbrook’s Fourth Grade class from Madison Elementary in St Cloud for the research on February’s Day in History.

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