Topic: The Old Lead Mine District: A Flash Point on the Cultural Landscape
Native and métis peoples of many nations actively mined ore in the old Upper Mississippi Lead Mine District before miners of diverse backgrounds flooded into the region in the early 19th century to vie for the extensive galena deposits. The Lead District became a critical scene of conflict which touched off a dramatic transformation of the cultural and physical landscape.
