Minneapolis City Directory Collection 1859-1935

Hennepin County Library's James K. Hosmer Special Collections department has digitized the Minneapolis City Directories from 1859 to 1931 partially using grant funding from the former Professional Librarians Union of Minneapolis (PLUM) and the Minnesota Legacy Amendment program. City directories allow users to find former city residents, their occupations, places of employment and spouses. Local businesses are also listed by name and subject category. The directories can also be searched by address.
