Fierce Gales – Split Rock Lighthouse

Standing on the North Shores of Minnesota, one finds themselves admiring the beauty of Lake Superior. The choppy waters hint at the hidden dangers that lie below the surface. Resting in the depths of those cold waters are roughly 350 ships. Many of these were victims of the fierce gales that sweep in during the late fall and winter months. The earliest recorded occurred in 1891, but it would be a late November 1905 storm that would show just how perilous the waters can be. With these tragedies impacting the movement of important materials, it would only be a matter of time before [...]

Embracing Nature – Crystal Bridges Museum Of American Art

60 Years Of Magic – Historic Park Inn Hotel

If you asked us to name a famous architect, we would probably come up with the same answer as most Americans. The reality is that while we love looking at all of the amazing architecture, we are oblivious to the masters behind the work. One name that we recognize, is Frank Lloyd Wright. This American designer created over 500 structures that carry recognizable features. It's easy to say that he impacted American architecture as much as anyone. With 60 years of magic under his belt, it's easy to say he was an inspiration for others.  We want to thank Visit Mason City and [...]
