Aerial photograph of St. Peter during the 1965 flood.

The 1965 flood in April, covered the Minnesota River Valley. Citizens of St. Peter and Gustavus students and staff pitched in to build dikes and to sandbag. Despite their efforts the river swelled to immense proportions. Special thanks to the Nicollett County Historical Society for this arial photograph of the city of St. Peter taken by Robert Swedberg. The Broadway Bridge on Minnesota Hwy. 99 is in the left corner of the picture.
