Built in 1911 as sleeping quarters for the fire lookout on 10,418 foot Kendrick Peak, this log cabin is now on the National Historic Register and survived a wildfire last summer. I stopped by while snowshoeing to the peak on Sunday. [3-11-18]
For this week's edition of @high_plains_reader we talked about whether or not the iconic Kirkbride facility can be saved in Fergus Falls Minnesota. The city requested a 9million dollar bond for demolition of the historic former mental health care facility. Some concerned citizens started a petition.
Rising Star Mill, which is located on the second floor of the gallery, is located in Nelsonville, WI, on the Tomorrow River. It is one of the oldest mills in that part of Wisconsin and the last of its kind in Portage County. On Sept 10, 1855, Jerome Nelson purchased land and water rights from Anna and Charles Stoltenberg. The Mill was built around 1860, and operated as a business until 1984. In 2017, it was listed on the Wisconsin State Registry of Historic Places. .
