Wesley North settled in what would become Northfield for the great hydrologic power potential and abundant natural resources. North built a saw mill, then a grist mill and a bridge. In 2015, Post Consumer Brands purchased MOM Brands (Malt-O-Meal) and continues to operate a mill in the same location established by North. In fact, Northfield is the only place in the world where Malt-O-Meal hot cereal is produced!

Defeat of Jesse James Days

The Town T


“Get your guns boys, they’re robbing the bank” At roughly 2:00 p.m., September 7, 1876, eight men rode into town, intent on robbing the First National Bank of Northfield. It would later be called a textbook James-Younger bank robbery, and it began with three members of the gang entering the bank and announcing that it was a holdup. The three desperados ordered three bank employees to open the safe, but were told the vault was locked and couldn’t be opened. On the street, local citizens began to arm themselves when a merchant discovered the robbery in progress. Upon their discovery, two gang members sprang to their horses and began shooting and yelling at the townspeople to leave the street. This forced the other three robbers into the fray. The first to fall was a Swedish immigrant named Nicholas Gustafson, who remained on the street because he did not understand English.

The battle lasted only seven minutes, but when it was over two robbers lay dead in the street and two more were badly wounded. Six outlaws fled south, and the largest manhunt at that time in U.S. history ensued. The Younger brothers were captured and Charlie Pitts was killed near Madelia, MN. Jesse and Frank James escaped the posse and made it to Missouri. The heroes that day included J.S. Allen, A.R. Manning, Henry Wheeler and others. But the biggest hero was Joseph Lee Heywood, who died because he would not open the bank vault and betray the trust of the bank owners and his fellow Northfield citizens. It is the extraordinary courage of these townspeople that we honor on the weekend after Labor Day each year during Defeat of Jesse James Days.

Everywhere Take one stroll through Northfield, Minnesota, with its many sculptures and sidewalks engraved with poetry, and you’ll know you’re in a place where the arts take center stage. Whether you’re inclined toward cultural museums and fine art galleries, upbeat music and live theater, or simply discovering the innovative creations of true craftspeople, Northfield has it and can’t wait to share it with you. 1 - Northfield Arts Guild Let’s start with the most obvious entry on this list. The Northfield Arts Guild, founded in 1961 by artists of various disciplines, is the purveyor of all-things artsy in the fair town of Northfield. And The Guild is far from a one-trick pony. The Northfield Arts Guild offers more than 100 events annually and 40 weekly art classes. From art galleries to exhibits, from classes to dancing, from theater in the Northfield Arts Guild Theater to theater in Central Park, there’s a little bit of everything offered by The Guild for a fan of art. In 2013, more than 1,200 local artists’ work was exhibited, more than 400 students took classes and 31,000 people passed through the doors of the Northfield Arts Guild.

Carleton College Carleton College’s arts calendar is nothing short of exceptional, featuring a wide array of concerts, film screenings, and theater productions. Also, be sure to check out Carleton’s Perlman Teaching Museum, which emphasizes the role that art plays in posing questions about life. The museum offers two impressive galleries and fully equipped support space.

St. Olaf College

Northfield Sculptures

Across the Cannon River to the west stands historic St. Olaf College, where the performing and visual arts are a big deal. St. Olaf embraces music, theater, dance and the visual arts. If you can score tickets, the renowned St. Olaf Christmas Festival is an experience that can’t be describe. The show is so revered, it airs annually on Twin Cities Public Television. Elsewhere, St. Olaf offers a vibrant art showcase and is well-known for its innovative theater productions and dance performances. The Flaten Art Museum is a must visit for an art lover.

When you’re not looking down at Northfield’s sidewalk poetry, simply look around and you’re bound to see the many beautiful sculptures placed around town. This interactive map shows you exactly where to find each sculpture in Northfield– see if you can spot them all!

2 - Sidewalk Poetry When walking around Northfield, don’t forget to look down or you might miss the city’s famed sidewalk poetry! The Arts and Culture Commission launched the Sidewalk Poetry Project in 2011. Each February, a competition is held whereby local residents may submit up to two short poems for consideration. Beginning in May, the winning poems are installed in sidewalks throughout the community, followed by a celebratory Capstone Event held the third Thursday of August in Northfield’s downtown Bridge Square.

3 - Riverwalk Market Fair The Northfield area is full of talented artists and artisans. Each Saturday morning, from May through October, Bridge Square in the heart of Northfield is turned over to vendors and a rotating list of musicians who kick of the weekend with warmth. From handmade jewelry to woodworking, pastries to produce, and a guest musician each week, the lovely Riverwalk Market Fair is always a treat to peruse and enjoy.

Out and about on the town The historic Carnegie Northfield Public Library, recently renovated and heralded as the best public library in the state, according to WCCO viewers, is art in itself through its architecture. Inside, a wonderful literary collection awaits. Outside, a rotating sculpture created by high school students can be found on the corner of Division Street and Third Street. As you’re standing at the statute, look down and you’ll see sidewalk poetry, product of an annual competition to stamp the city with the talents of its residents. Since 2012, the works have been installed and are peppered throughout downtown and the city. If you make it to Northfield City Hall, enjoy the rotating works from local artists. It truly is a citywide effort and appreciation.

Local Venues with Live Music Live music can be found almost every day of the week in downtown Northfield. From Irish, jazz, and bluegrass jam sessions to piano balladeers and original indie rock, there’s something for everyone. Head to the Contented Cow to catch performances at their indoor or outdoor stage nearly every evening. You’ll find the Tavern Lounge, Froggy Bottoms, Imminent Brewing, and Tanzenwald Brewing Company rocking most weekend nights.

Sledding hills on either side of the Cannon River Nerstrand Big Woods State Park

Most folks are aware of the two prestigious colleges that anchor Northfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s east side (Carleton College) and west side (St. Olaf College). But did you know both colleges sport outstanding hills for premium sledding? For years, locals have taken advantage of the easy-to-access hills to wear out their kids and get the best sledding south of the river (the other one). Head over to Old Main at St. Olaf (off of Lincoln St. S.) or Bell Field at Carleton (east side of campus) to sled the winter away. Enjoy it while you can, because the trek up the hills will catch up with you.

Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing trails are abundant when snow conditions are right. The natural lands at St. Olaf College and the Arboretum at Carleton College are great spots right in town, or head out to nearby Caron Park, Nerstrand Big Woods State Park, or River Bend Nature Center. Snowshoe rentals available from The Gear ReSource

The growth in the latter half of the 20th century produced a new look with the custom-built ranch housed placed along curvilinear streets and cul-de-sacs as the city gradually expanded its borders. In more recent years, there has been the rapid addition of large, distinctive homes that favor threecar garages, first in developments east of town and more recently on the northwest edge of town. There have also been a number of town home and twin home developments that have proved

Home to Two Colleges From its earliest days, Northfield has been home to two outstanding liberal arts colleges. Northfield College was founded in 1866 and changed its name to honor a benefactor, William Carleton, in 1871. Today, Carleton’s enrollment is around 2,000 students. The St. Olaf School was formed in 1874. Its original purpose was to educate Norwegian immigrants and prepare them for life in the new country. Today St. Olaf’s enrollment is approximately 3,100. ST. OLAF COLLEGE Located on the west edge of town atop Manitou Heights, St. Olaf’s campus offers an impressive view of Northfield and the Cannon river Valley. St. Olaf hosts many events that are of interest and open to the public, including athletics, lectures, performing and visual arts. St. Olaf is home to the annual nationally televised St. Olaf Christmas Festival. For more information visit: www.stolaf.edu
