Did you know?

When Concordia Teacher’s College began digging the foundation for David Dorm in early 1968, construction crews uncovered a number of graves. Rumor quickly spread the graves were an Indian burial site but in reality, the skeletal remains that were found were determined to likely be those of original homesteader Robert Gale and other early settlers. They were buried in a long-forgotten cemetery on a corner of the original 160-acre plat Gale filed in 1863, one day after the Homestead Act went into effect.
