Little Log House Pioneer Village
The St. Croix Valley Camera Club (SCVCC) has invited us to join their members at an outing to Little Log House Pioneer Village on Sunday, October 21 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm.
The village has some forty-five restored buildings, a replica of the Hastings Spiral Bridge, a flower garden that spans over 40,000 square feet and even a dirt track for tractor and truck pulls. The only time when they are open to the public is for their Antique Power Show, a three day extravaganza for which they charge $10 a day. Our clubs will have a unique opportunity of having the place to ourselves. We will meet at the exit 2 Park and Ride at 1:00 pm for carpooling and arrival a little before 2:00. Our club was there a few years ago, and we had always wanted to go back. There is tons of subject matter as seen by the interactive map of the village and a few photos from our previous visit.
This is a great example of how our membership in the Twin Cities Area Council of Camera Clubs has benefited our members. We have made greats friends with other clubs and we owe Mike Chrun our thanks.

St. Croix Photo Day Important Update
Towards the end of St. Croix Valley Photo Day on Saturday the host club (SCVCC) found out that the Folsom House wasn’t open earlier in the day. In checking, they found out that the manager was still dealing with a flooded basement following almost 6” of rain Thursday. Chad apologized and offered a deal to camera club members. If people still want to see and photograph this historic home, they can identify themselves as camera club members and Chad will allow them to do so free until the season ends sometime in October. Here is the Folsom House website for times when it will be open.
