Hello, I am Kristine, a new blogger for the DMPL Local History Blog. I have an avid interest in local history and genealogy. I will be sharing information on the historical aspects of Des Moines as well as tips and tricks for genealogy research.
The area where Park Fair Mall now stands at Second and Euclid is the site of an interesting piece of Des Moines educational history. Highland Park College, Des Moines University, and the University of Lawsonomy once stood on this spot.
