Take a trip back through time and learn about the wonderful city of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. This 37 minute presentation is filled with stories about life in what is now Brooklyn Park from the periods of the first settlers to the growth as a city.
In mid-2016 production started on Our Town’s Story – Brooklyn Park. Work was done with the help of The Brooklyn Historical Society.
