Knute Nelson

Chris Kleven took this photo of the statue of Knute Nelson on the steps of the State Capitol while in St. Paul last Monday. Nelson, who was a resident of Alexandria, was governor of Minnesota from 1893 to 1895 and also served as a United States representative and senator. His former home now houses the Douglas County Historical Society at 1219 Nokomis Street. If you have a great photo, email it to Lowell Anderson at
