Events that Shaped The Municipality of Pipestone
An Illustrated Timeline
The following collection of dates and activities has been taken from local histories with additional material from archival sources such as photos, maps, and contemporary newspaper reports.
A timeline is a useful way to establish a community’s development, and a good way to note its highlights. All of this information can be used to develop the kind of content that is helpful in describing a community’s history through short, effective and accurate texts that will be appropriate for educational support materials, plaques, website content, and myriad other follow-up projects.
The dates and activities have been presented in a decade-by-decade format, which allows us to relive the past through the lens of the flow of time; but it is important to note that pivotal events can also be broadly grouped by major chronological periods in our history attached to primary activities of a given era.
