Grand Meadow Heritage Festival in Siouxland, Washta

11 Sep

I visited Siouxland’s Grand Meadow Heritage Center Festival this past weekend, and it was like stepping back in time. A variety of items from agriculture’s past era with vintage tractors, plus volunteers demonstrating a lumber operation cutting cedar planks from tree trunks. The Heritage Center’s museum is quite amazing. I had not been inside previously and there are so many items tucked inside this former school that the breadth of history found there is amazing. Plus to see such a structure still functioning, albeit on a minimal level. It reminded me of a school I attended growing up in Illinois. Down to the sunken gymnasium in the “basement”.
