When we think of making any kind of long trip many of us groan about the high price of gas, long lines, indecent security checks, sickening turbulence, and rude people. When we look back at the way our ancestors traveled, it seems similarly fraught with frustrations, albeit of a slightly different variety.

This spring the Carlton County Historical Society is exhibiting a show on the history of the Military Road of Carlton County. Stop in and see the exhibit at the opening night party: 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 27, at the Carlton County Historical Society, 406 Cloquet Ave., Cloquet.
