Documenting stories of our community for future residents is what this project is all about.

Two weeks after he graduated from Mankato State University, Tim and his wife Mary were married. Tim’s degree was in Management and Marketing; Mary’s in nursing. Mary grew up in St. Paul and the couple initially lived in the Midway and East Side before buying a house in Como Park 20 years ago.
