Black and white photograph of the Ho-Chunk leader Baptiste Lasallier wearing a mix of American Indian and Euro-American clothing, c.1855. After the treaty of 1859 the U.S. government recognized Lasallier as the "head chief" of the Ho-Chunk at Blue Earth.

The newly completed Barn Bluff stairway, shown about 1929, provided hikers a safer trail to the summit. Construction for a 1960 highway bridge caused the destruction of this route but many of its stairs were saved. They became a part of a 1983 staircase to the bluff-top.
