MSUM Students’ Research Turned Into An Exhibit

It's at the Comstock House in Moorhead

MOORHEAD, Minn. — MSUM students are getting the chance to have their research turned into a permanent exhibit.

A history class studied what Moorhead’s Comstock House and its surrounding area was like during the 1800’s.

They created posters about the neighbors that will be displayed inside the Comstock House.

In addition to providing students with important skills they can use in their future careers, their professor says it’s gratifying for them to share their work with the community.

“Students are used to writing papers that the professor sees and that’s the end of it. So this gives them an opportunity to reach a larger audience and I think it’s been a positive experience for them,” said Paul Harris, a history professor at MSUM.

The Comstock House was built in 1882 to start bringing more upscale housing developments to the area.
