A visit from the Swedes and barn update

The below photo is of a group of Swedes from Andrew Peterson home community of Ydre, Sweden.  They spent several days in and around Waconia, and Lindstrom, then traveled to Chicago. An open house was held at the farm.  Intended to be a picnic, rain moved us into the house where the Cloudberries preformed.

After the performance, a full rainbow came out.  What a wonderful sight. Apologies for the picture being sideways, I couldn’t get it turned.  It is to beautiful of a photo not to share.

Really good news, the north barn passed inspection and we are free to finish construction.  Painting will however not take place until next spring as it will soon be getting to cold to paint.  Photo of the barn construction, coming soon.

I am the Executive Director at the Carver County Historical Society. The truth of the matter is, that I am not sure I want to admit to how many years I have been in this business. Suffice it to say I have a Masters degree in Public and Nonprofit Administration and began my career in the 1980s. Oops, did I say that? I was reared on a farm, and began my career working at the MNHS site, the Oliver Kelley Farm. The love of the land and history run deep in my blood.
