On this site you can find out about people, projects and research related to the history of the Upper Mississippi Watershed. Our goal is to create a user-friendly digital platform and portal for historical research on cartography, international relations, society and culture, and environmental concerns related to this region.

Check out our gateway project on Joseph Nicollet’s 1843 Hydrographical Map, which is housed in the John R. Borchert Map Library at the University of Minnesota.
