    Sauk Rapids, county history come alive

    What's the best way to get people interested in history? Pictures, of course. Ronald Christopher Zurek pieces together almost 200 vintage photographs into a regional history in "Sauk Rapids and Benton County." Going back as far as the 1850s, the book explores the industries, businesses and the people that have contributed to the area's growth. James J. Hill's influence on the railroads and the tiny saloon that was to become Coborn's Superstore are just some of the highlights. Group portraits dominate the book, capturing the lifestyles of granite workers, young men leaving for World War II and operators connecting telephone conversations at the turn of the century. And we can't forget the Prohibition era federal officers reveling in their moonshine bust. The Ojibwe American Indians who originally lived in the Benton County area serve as a brief introduction to the rest of the book. One chapter focuses on Sauk Rapids' fatal 1886 cyclone, with photos of the destruction.

    An outstanding collection of vintage photographs

    An excellent pictorial book on Sauk Rapids and the surrounding communities in Benton County. The photos of the aftermath from the Sauk Rapids cyclone of 1886 were facinating as were those of the early residents, their growing businesses, and prospering industries.
