French traders and missionaries were active in the region that is now Minnesota as early as the 1650's; however, settlement proceeded slowly and the area was not organized as a territory until 1849. Minnesota was admitted to the Union as the 32nd State on May 11, 1858. the earthquake history of the State is incomplete, owing to the scarity of residents prior to the middle of the 19th century.
