March of the Governors
March 2023-Mid-June 2024
RCHS Gallery, Landmark Center First Floor
75 Fifth Street West, Saint Paul MN 55102
In conjunction with the monthly “March of the Governors” podcast series, an exhibition in the RCHS Gallery at Landmark Center provides brief snapshots of Minnesota’s forty-one governors during their terms in office. Eight to ten panels at a time will be installed that will tell a brief snapshot of each governor’s life. The panels will rotate every 3 months. There’s far more to each of their stories, both positive and negative, we hope you will be inspired to learn more.
The initial installation includes:
- Henry Hastings Sibley (link to podcast page)
- Alexander Ramsey (link to podcast page)
- Henry Adoniram Swift (link to podcast page)
- Stephen A. Miller (link to podcast page)
- William Rainey Marshall (link to podcast page)
- Horace Austin (link to podcast page)
- Cushman Kellogg Davis (link to podcast page)
- John Sargent Pillsbury (link to podcast page)
Special thanks to each of the podcast presenters, host Paul Nelson and podcast producers Don Lee and Bob Ernt.
