Brief Description:

The Luella J. Hall Papers consist of two folders. Folder one contains newspaper clippings from The Renville County Farmer from 1951 to 1954. The bulk of the clippings are from the June 21, 1951 edition, issued to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Mohall. Most clippings concern Mohall and Renville County history and are individually mounted on paper. Also included are two postcards, featuring Mohall’s first community Christmas tree in 1925 and the Mohall City Park.

Folder two contains a paper written about 1923 by Hall, “The Early History of Mohall, North Dakota.” The paper, fifty pages long, contains four chapters: I. Physiography of the Mouse River Loop, North Dakota; II. The founding of Mohall; III. The coming of the railroad; and IV. The reorganization of Renville County. The first three chapters cover to 1903, and the fourth covers to 1910. The paper includes a description of the area, mentioning floods, blizzards, travel, Mohall pioneers, and railroad expansion. Also mentioned are regional towns, including Minot and Towner, and the separation of Renville County from Ward County.
