Services With the addition of later stations, MPR originally offered a mix of classical music and NPR news talk programming on a single service. Beginning in 1991 (1991 in radio), MPR's programming split in two, forming separate news and classical music services (although one station in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan still carries a combination of those two services). The 2005 acquisition of WCAL (KCMP) in Northfield, Minnesota, which covers the Minneapolis-St. Paul and Rochester (Rochester, Minnesota) areas, provided the opportunity to launch another music service, "The Current". This third service has gradually expanded to most of southern eastern Minnesota. About The Current Programming on The Current is mostly locally-produced. The Current is carried on seven transmitters, serving a majority of the state's population. The main transmitter is KCMP (89.3 FM), licensed to Northfield (Northfield, Minnesota) on the southeastern periphery of the Twin Cities, though the signal covers most of the metro area. A lower-power station, KMSE (88.7 FM), serves Rochester (Rochester, Minnesota) and southeastern Minnesota, and KCMP translators serve Hinckley (Hinckley, Minnesota) and Mankato (Mankato, Minnesota). http: minnesota.publicradio.org radio services the_current about In addition, the station is broadcast on a HD Radio sideband channel to listeners of KNSR in St. Cloud (St. Cloud, Minnesota) and KPCC (KPCC (radio station)) in Los Angeles.

In 1856, Peter Fries, an Austrian immigrant (immigration), built a large, stone inn at the main crossroads of the city. It was popular with newlyweds, and Jesse James (Jesse James (outlaw)) and his gang were reported to have stayed there prior to their famous raid on Northfield, Minnesota. The structure has survived and has been restored as the Black Horse Inn. Sherrill and the surrounding rural district received large numbers of German (German American) immigrants in the 19th century. German Catholic (Roman Catholic Church) (Ss. Peter and Paul (Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church (Sherrill))), German Lutheran (Lutheranism) (St. Matthew), German Methodist (Methodism), and German Evangelical (Evangelical and Reformed Church) churches were founded and remain active.

It was constructed in 1887 and was, at the time, the largest observatory in the state of Minnesota. It was named for Charles Goodsell, who donated much of the land on which Carleton was founded.

Ordained as Congregationalist minister, he preached first in Brodhead, Wisconsin for two years, and then in Faribault, Minnesota beginning in 1865. The Congregational Church in Minnesota had established a college in the nearby town of Northfield (Northfield, Minnesota) in 1866, and in 1870, Strong was invited to become its first president. Initially, Strong declined the position, since the college's outlook seemed poor. Northfield College (Carleton College) had few students in its preparatory academy, and up until that fall, no students in its college department. It was operating out of an old hotel, the construction of its new building stalled due to inadequate materials and a lack of funds. The trustees were convinced Strong was the man to provide the leadership to improve the college's reputation and financial status, so they made him a more generous offer and this time he accepted.
