With this page you can access two
subjects that are close to my heart.


This document is what I call Twin Cities Music Highlights.  This is my attempt to gather information about the music scene that took place primarily in the mid-to-late 1960s in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area, with an emphasis, of course, on connections to St. Louis Park,
my home town. This has snowballed into a pretty lengthy document, but you can skip to various sections. I invite additions and corrections, so feel free to contact me at jeanneandersen@comcast.net.


Next, an explanation of the Brookside Timeline:  I have done extensive research into the history of the Brookside neighborhood in St. Louis Park, including all of Highway 100 and Excelsior Blvd.  I grew up right on Highway 100 before it was a superhighway, and always wondered how it got started.  Most of that information can be found at www.slphistory.org, the official web site of the St. Louis Park Historical Society, which I also maintain.  The information on the Historical Society site is divided into categories such as schools, businesses, people, etc.  The Brookside Timeline below puts these topics from the Historical Society site into a chronology that includes information from the ice age to 1974. It includes information about Brookside, as well as local, state, and national milestones.

Thanks for visiting my site!
