Mappy Monday: Goodhue County, Minnesota

   Time to reveal my "blogging plan"... Although I suspect most of you have figured it out already! I like focusing on one Luxembourger-American community per week. It gives me a chance to learn where families settled, what their lives were like, and what resources are available to study them. I've been mixing a few communities but have decided it's time to focus on just one.
  This week's focus is Bellechester, Minnesota. Most Luxembourgers were farmers, so they didn't just settle in town. That means we're also looking at Goodhue County.
   So, question 1: what does it look like? Check out a county map here. To learn more about history, visit the county's interactive historic mapping site here.
