Monday started off with the Rail Fair GN swap meet.  Later on, I attended the open house of the James J. Hill library several blocks away and toured the basement vaults containing the J.J. Hill and Louis Hill papers.  That afternoon and evening we had modeling and local interest presentations.  We closed our day with the annual business meeting where GNRHS members have the opportunity to talk with President Jim Larson about the Society.
