The K.K. Steen Collection, available at the Center for Western Studies, is composed of two manuscripts written by Bernt Magnus ("Magnus K.") Steen. The longer manuscript is divided into two parts. The first part recounts the journey Magnus and his father (K. K. Steen) took in 1875 from Allamakee County, Iowa, to Rock County, Minnesota, to find a homestead for the Steen family. The second part details the family's journey in 1876 from Iowa to the Minnesota homestead. The other manuscript is a history of an Allamakee County pioneer schoolhouse, built in 1862 by K. K. Steen and others.
