Issue Date: 
March/April 1993

J.R. Tincom had a beautiful dream for 240 homes and a city park to be built on his land; it would take 120 years for it to be realized. Palmer has intriguingly traced Tincom’s vision through the years and the people who settled the James Avenue area and helped make it the important part of Mankato that it is today.
