Every month, we are featuring one of the 12 Primary Source Sets developed for the Collaborative in 2018. April’s feature set focuses on the people who settled in and emigrated to the Northfield area.

Settlement and Immigration Primary Source Set

This set has links to primary sources that tell the stories of Northfield’s founders, like John W. North, Hiram Scriver, and more. It also includes information on the many immigrant groups who have come to the area and called Northfield home.

There are also questions that help us all dig into the reasons why people came to Northfield so we can try to see ourselves in their shoes. For those who want more, there are plenty of links to additional resources and lesson plans under this topic, as well.
