City of Detroit Lakes to celebrate sesquicentennial in 2021

This street scene from downtown Detroit Lakes was once used as a postcard. Though the streets are now paved and the storefronts look a bit different, the similarities to today's downtown can still be seen in this Becker County Museum photo.

The City of Detroit Lakes and Becker County will both celebrate their 150th birthdays in 2021, and plans are already underway for the sesquicentennial festivities, including a new ice palace!
