Bittersweet anniversary at Lindbergh boyhood home

LITTLE FALLS, Minn. - It's a bittersweet anniversary for the folks who manage and run Charles Lindbergh's boyhood home in Little Falls.

Thursday marks the anniversary of Lindbergh's historic flight. It was 82 years ago that Lindbergh became the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

Last month, the Minnesota Historical Society put the Lindbergh Historic Site on a preliminary list of places it plans to close, due to budget cuts. The final list is expected to be released within the next week.

However, at least for now, the Lindbergh site is conducting business as usual. The site will open for the season this Saturday and will be open at least through the month of June.
