A couple times a year, my Dad and I take a road trip down memory lane
He calls it God's Country
Can you read the words on this shed?
So it's true... It is God's Country.
Lanesboro, Harmony, Fountain, Mabel/Canton, Black Hammer,
HighLand, HenryTown, & Lenora are just a few of the towns we went through.
(and Dad had a story for each place we traveled through)
Farmland at it's best
Lunch in Highland, I believe this was the only business in Highland
Loved the vintage tables and chairs
HenryTown is where many of my Dad's relatives are buried
I took this photo, cuz I love the wooden sign, with the cornfield in the back.
The grass road that leads to what's left of my Great Grandpa Jen's farm
I love this path and what's at the end of it...
...The old windmill.
My Dad actually lived at this farm for a couple years.
The Storlie School in Preble Township
(southeast Fillmore County)
This School was bought by a family and restored to be a summer home.
The significance of this school is that my grandma and her mom attended this school.
Our trip ended at the Creamery in Rushford, MN
If you've never been to this creamery, I highly recommend it!
They have a full menu but the ice cream was "to die for"
I think Dad's eyes were bigger then his belly
OH dad :)
Stay tuned for part two of our trip to God's Country.
I'll feature a pioneer church, other old beautiful churches and old cemeteries
