When did this happen?
Perham Minnesota 222 2nd Avenue SE 56573

This photo pictures the last steam engine to run through Perham. On what date, in what year, did this Northern Pacific train pass through town?

Congratulations to Len Hotakainen, who was the first to recognize the church in last week's History Mystery photo as the Apostolic Lutheran Church on the south side of new York Mills. Maria Bachim also answered correctly, adding that her mother, Esther (Niska) Underdahl, was 12 years old at the time the photo was taken, and she went with her parents, Walter and Signe Niska, to watch the church being moved into town from the country.
