More About Minnesota
Designated as a U.S. territory in 1849, the name Minnesota comes from the Dakota Indian description of sky-tinted waters, hinting at the more than 10,000 lakes the state boasts. Minnesota is 357 miles wide by 411 miles long, with its highest point at Eagle Mountain. Did you know the governor's salary was just $3000 in 1870, or that there are over 350 shipwrecks at the bottom of Lake Superior?
