Legend has it the #OnlyinMN monument was hand-carved by Paul Bunyan himself: whittled from ancient Minnesota hardwoods into the massive, 40-foot span we see today. And though we're not sure if the stories are true, we're proud to say it's never been easier to find your next #OnlyinMN destination. Literally.
Always on the go, the #OnlyinMN monument can usually be found at a Minnesota attraction or event, but never for too long. Like you, it's a traveler. Watch for this photo opportunity to pop up soon at some of your favorite Minnesota destinations and events.
The #OnlyinMN monument was last seen cheering on the Super Bowl festivities from its primo spot in downtown Minneapolis, Jan. 27–Feb. 4. It's currently taking a bit of time off to recharge and recenter itself, but come summer you'll find it soaking up the sun in Little Falls, June 1–22.

Lindbergh’s Complex Legacy - Presentation & Discussion
Sunday, June 24, 01:30 PM - Sunday, June 24, 02:30 PM
Categories: Family Fun, History
What makes a person a good American? What makes someone a hero? Can someone stop being a hero? These questions and more will be explored in this program that examines Charles Lindbergh leading up to World War II.
Lindbergh meant many things to many people. To some, he was the "golden boy" who could do no wrong: a young, handsome, brave pilot who suffered the kidnapping and death of his first child. To others, he was un-American, a traitor in support of Hitler and an isolationist against the United States' entry into World War II.
The program will include a staff presentation followed by a discussion session to gain a greater understanding of Lindbergh's complex legacy.
