    This is our spring main floor exhibit re-telling the history of Waseca County's first towns and settlements--the ones that didn't survive. Why didn't they? After all this time, where were they? And who were the people who tried to start a new town?
    See original plat maps, photos, stories. More than 150 years later, are there any comparisons? What is the state of outstate, small town Minnesota?
