In 2008, Minnesota voters passed the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment to the Minnesota Constitution. The amendment -- often referred to more simply as the Legacy Amendment -- provides funding for state archaeological surveys as well as various other preservation programs. The funding comes from an increase to state sales tax by three-eighths of one percent, which began on July 1, 2009 and will continue until 2034. You can learn more about the Legacy amendment and how to apply for funding at www.legacy.leg.mn.
The tabs below contain several statewide archaeological survey publications that have been made available to the public as part of the Legacy-funded Statewide Survey of Historical and Archaeological Sites. Note, not all of these survey publications are directly related to the the Legacy-funded statewide survey.
