New Exhibit Explores the Geological History of Pelican Rapids
March 7th- 22nd

geology.jpg

Step back in time at the Otter Tail County Historical Society– way back. A new exhibit on display through March 22 explores the geologic history of the Pelican Rapids area as well as the discovery of Minnesota Woman and the history of Native Americans in the area.

The display focuses on Glacial Minnesota Woman and the Native American artifacts found by local collectors. It plots out the geologic history of the Pelican Rapids area and explains the process of glaciation which eventually led to the death and burial of Minnesota Woman.

The history of Minnesota Woman is a story right out of a great thriller or an archeologist’s nightmare–– an empty eye socket staring up out of the soil, the road repair crew in hurry, inadvertently unearthing and then disturbing an archaeological find of the greatest importance. But it wasn’t just a bad dream. Minnesota Woman is the name given to the skeleton of a young girl discovered on June 16, 1931 under trunk highway #30 (now State Hwy #59), on the east side of Prairie Lake, north of Pelican Rapids.

In 1929, construction began on 28 miles of gravel road from Pelican Rapids to Detroit Lakes. Seven feet of soil was removed from a hill near Prairie Lake. The entire road was then graded and covered with two feet of gravel, heaped high in the middle and sloped to the edges for rain runoff into gutters on each side of the road. Over the winter and spring, the yellow clay/silt beneath the road retained water that froze, thawed, and heaved up the center of the road into a 600 foot long frost boil. Travel was difficult. In June, the boil was removed. As Carl Steffan, a member of the road crew, walked by the grader removing the boil, he noticed a “white, shimmering glow” of clam shell pieces. He stopped the grader, dug into the clay with his bare hands and uncovered a skull. Carl and Eugene Russell, also on the road crew, continued to dig, unearthed the body and took inventory by assembling the skeleton on the side of the road. They also laid out the artifacts they found with the skeleton.

The find was reported to Dr. A. E. Jenks of the University of Minnesota’s Archeology department. He was unavailable, but sent geologist Dr. C. F. Stauffer who looked at the site, wrapped the bones in crushed newspaper and sealed them in a carton for transport to the University.

The discovery was and remains a mystery. How old are the bones? Was she buried as part of a ceremony or buried naturally? Some believe she fell through the ice; others believe that she drowned in Glacial Lake Pelican; still others believe she was buried by a landslide. Whoever is right, her body was covered slowly, about three inches per year, in the silt carried by glacial melt water, until the body was nine feet under the surface of the ground.

How long ago was the skeleton known as Minnesota Woman buried? Opinions vary from 7,800 to 20,000 years. The Native Americans who lived in Otter Tail County after her have left only a few more signs of their presence. Over the years, farmers walking their fields have found arrowheads, debitage (pieces of rock chipped off a larger rock while making an arrowhead or spear point) and pieces of pottery. These artifacts were lost or abandoned in the 1800’s by Native Americans. The arrowheads and spear points were probably lost while hunting. The debitage are thought to be evidence of a camp because Native Americans might have sat in camp making arrowheads and other points. This is also true of the broken pots. This exhibit builds on the already detailed permanent display of Native American history at the Museum.

Another part of the exhibit at the Museum describes the geologic history of the Pelican Rapids area. Follow the timeline of changes that the Earth underwent during 4,600 million years, from a glowing molten mass to the blue and green planet we know today. Investigate the special section that describes the two million years during which glaciers moved across the area that would become Minnesota and Pelican Rapids.

The history of Pelican Rapids goes way beyond the first settler in the 1800s and much of that history is buried in the ground. Stop by the Museum during March to refresh your view of local history.
