I am very proud of my small town. I live in a little river town named Wabasha and we are one of the earliest settled towns in Minnesota. Some say we are the oldest and some say we are the second oldest, but of course it is just good to know we are old. We are also small, 2500 people call this home. We are few but we are proud. One of the neatest things that I like about my town is how we preserved the old buildings.
I will start with our welcome sign...est 1830, oh yes and the home of Grumpy Old Men. The movies were set in Wabasha, the names and the places were Wabasha but unfortunately non of the scenes were filmed here.
These next shots are all from downtown, if you make them bigger most of them have the year on them that they were built. I got these from our website.
This is the old City hall, then it was the library, the it was an antique place then a clock store and now it is a jewelry store.
This is a favorite house of mine, not sure when this was built but it is old.
Then of course we have the new..The National Eagle Center. It is a really neat place and a fun place for visitors to go.
