Minnesota has been the 32nd state of the United States since it was admitted into the Union on May 11, 1858. Before statehood, Minnesota comprised the eastern part of the Minnesota Territory.
The state holds true to its nickname “Land of the 10,000 Lakes,” as it has a total of 11,842 lakes according to the official state count.
