PAPER TRAIL. Newspapers, tax records, plat books and dozens of other books and printed items in the collection at the Sherburne History Center were highlighted during the "Day at the Museum" tour at the facility last Saturday. One day, the newspapers shown here and many others will be available on a computer screen, SHC officials said, making family historical research a much more convenient process.
