Welcome to a new website from the creator of Forgotten Minnesota.

Hi, I’m Carrie. I’m the photographer and writer behind Forgotten Minnesota, and this new adventure, Road Trips & History. I’m a frequent road tripper and probably the person you saw making a U-turn to get a better look at that old building in your town.  

Back in 2011, I started Forgotten Minnesota to share the stories of forgotten and overlooked people and places in Minnesota. I explored hundreds of places and wrote almost two million words about Minnesota history over the website’s ten-year run. But as 2019 came to a close, I knew I wanted to do something a little different.

In January 2020, I started planning a new website that would allow me to spend less time in the library and more time having adventures. So Road Trips & History will embrace road trips and exploring new places. And every post won’t be about Minnesota this time — but the site will remain Minnesota-centric.

Take a look around. I think you’ll enjoy the ride.
