1915 · Home of the Federal Reserve Bank for the Ninth District

Age 1

The first building for the Federal Reserve bank in Minneapolis was completed in 1915 and was a peculiar structure. It had no windows on the lower walls close to the street and later, a small skyscraper was added to the top. It was created to serve the states of Montana, North and South Dakota, Minnesota, and the northern parts of Wisconsin and Michigan. Even though it covers a wide area, it serves the smallest population base of the entire reserve system. Today the Federal Reserve is housed in three buildings that are housed a few blocks away from each other.
1916 · The First woman elected into the US Congress

Age 2

Jeannette Pickering Rankin became the first woman to hold a federal office position in the House of Representatives, and remains the only woman elected to Congress by Montana.
1933 · The Browns Valley Man

Age 19

Just like the Minnesota Woman, The Browns Valley Man are deemed the oldest human remains found in Minnesota. They were found by W. H. Jenson, while he was laying gravel for his driveway, in the Traverse gap in western Minnesota. The remains are believed to be around 9,000 years old.
