Description

An illustrated survey focusing on some of the ethnic and religious groups who settled early in our state’s capital city–a vibrant African-American community, thousands of Germans from Russia, early settlers from Mexico and others. Architectural historian Ed Zimmer uses historic photographs, cemetery records, existing buildings and other sources to offer a visible heritage of these Lincolnites.
