I was excited when I saw this "rough" theme since last week I took two of my grandsons to a place now called the Landing...... AKA Murphy's Landing.....where you go back in time beginning in 1840's to 1890's....learning how "rough" people had it when they "ROUGHED" it living in the Minnesota River Valley 150 years ago. The Landing is ....88 acres of a living history museum, with authentic 19th century buildings nestled along a scenic river trail....come see for yourself....
|A genuine Beaver hat!... at the local fur trader, at the Oliver Faribault Cabin....along side animal skins where you brought your animal skins in for payment!|
|Sorry the only means of communication arrived as a letter or package in these bags at the nearest General Store. Twitter was for birds and sorry no telephones yet!|
|We might go back and buy that Civil war hat Jack wanted, (but I thought oh he'd never wear it")... but at another stop..... clearly Jack has a thing for hats and acting!|
This is a great YouTube clip for The landing- Minnesota River Heritage Park (all the buildings are authentic and moved here from other locations in Minnesota!) Enjoy the volunteer characters!
