Join the Dakota County Historical Society and the Sibley Historic Site for September's Mendota After Hours: "John Dillinger, Ma Barker and Me: Of Gangsters, G-Men and Gun Molls" 


A shocking and entertaining look back at the 1930s Public Enemies-era of Saint Paul, when outlaws John Dillinger, Alvin “Creepy” Karpis, Babyface Nelson, Machine Gun Kelly, Freddie and Doc Barker, and Bugsy Seigel were welcomed (and protected) by the St. Paul Police Department. As featured on multiple A & E TV documentaries an the History Channel’s “Crime Story” TV program, Maccabee draws his stories from more than 100,000 pages of long-secret FBI and police files and more than 250 interviews with police, crime victims and family members of the gangsters themselves. 

Paul Macabee is a Saint Paul crime historian and the author of John Dillinger Slept Here: A Crooks’ Tour of Crime and Corruption in Saint Paul.

Space is limited, so please register below. This is being offered as an in-person event, drinks and light refreshments will be served.
