I’m continuing my stroll down History Lane at the Blue Earth County Fairgrounds today. As with last Sunday, the photos are simply better in black and white. I am still looking real small in all the shots, but trust me, these buildings were small, so I don’t know why I look so little.
Do you remember this log house on History Lane from last Sunday? I had Mom do some further research and we found out a few interesting facts. The actual owners of this cozy home were German immigrants, Augustus and Emma (yes, Emma) Krosch. They lived in the home for thirty four years and get this – they raised eleven children in there! Oh my dog! We also found out it is a two story home with two bedrooms upstairs. I sure hope these people weren’t much taller than I am or I don’t know how they could stand! On the photo of the street, you can see the upstairs windows, but wow, a two story? Absolutely amazing! Appaws to Augustus and Emma for not going nuts!
This completes my trip down History Lane which was the last stop on my day trip in the Mitsubishi Outlander CUV. I have to go sit and ponder how a couple raised eleven kids in the log house. It is a bit too much to imagine! It would be tough for a dog to even raise eleven puppies in such a small home!
Today I’m joining the Black and White Sunday Blog Hop, with a splash of Christmas red, sponsored by Dachshund Nola and Sugar the Golden Retriever. Remember to stop by and visit some of the other blogs on the hop to meet new friends!
