Historic Homes Often Come with Historic Families

Recently the Star Tribune published an interesting article about three families that live in Bloomington and were honored for their time in Minnesota.

“When Bloomington celebrated the 150th anniversary of its founding earlier this year, the city recognized “Century Families” whose lineage in town stretched back 100 years or more. Three of those families were the Ponds, the Harrisons and the Pahls, whose descendants still live in Bloomington. “

They are not famous by any standards, but their founding fathers helped shape an area, that in the 1850’s, was void of anything but nature and wildlife. We often forget where we come from, how we got here, and some don’t stop to think about where they are going. But for some families, their family history is still passed down through the generations and they take pride in what their ancestors have done.
