The Diaries of Lydia Ferguson, Excelsior Pioneer with ELMHS volunteer Lisa Stevens
Much of what we know about early Lake Minnetonka history comes from the pages of this frail woman’s diaries. She recorded it all, from 1854-1886, in a clear eyed chronicle which includes her own family’s tale of suffering, insanity, death, love, endurance and guts. Experience a sepia tone-free view of the past in Lydia Ferguson’s own words.
