On a Friday night in January, 1958, 330 teens attended a dance at Pershing Park. Author David Smith who wrote City of Parks: The Story of Minneapolis Parks (published in 2008 by the Minneapolis Parks Foundation) is trying to find someone who was there.
David has begun a blog on Minneapolis park history at http://minneapolisparkhistory.com/. He writes about things that interest him in park history, but he’s also encouraging readers to write about their favorite Minneapolis park or a fond memory of a park. He’s also happy to post old photos of parks, if you have them.
If you were at that dance, and could jot down a few thoughts about the event, please contact David through his website address above.
