It’s May! Here is your May trivia snippet: On May 14, 1804. Lewis and Clark left St. Louis to embark on their famous journey. And you know what was included in their packs of trade goods? Beads! Lots and lots of beads! They had more than a dozen different types of beads. Just think of the selection the would have had if they had been able to stop at the Taylors Falls Bead Store! They would have had hundreds and hundreds to choose from! Ol’ Meriwether and William paddled thousands of miles to trade their beads. You only need to hop in your car! And you don’t have to fight off bears! You can, however, take a hike to commemorate the event. Interstate Park is in our backyard after all. Lewis and Clark would have done it.
