THE EXPERIMENTAL CITY - a film documentary
Tuesday, April 17 7pm
The film documentary focuses on the now largely-forgotten Minnesota Experimental City project of the 1960’s. If you’ve never heard of it, you’re not alone. This project, surely one of the most ambitious in Minnesota history, has been near-buried for 50 years. Dreamed up by a University of Minnesota dean to eliminate pollution and fix the broken mid-Century city, this domed community was set to be built in either Douglas or Aitkin County. Businessman, Dick Pemberton of Fergus Falls, who makes an appearance in this documentary, was one of those strongly against this project.
