Memories of the Past
While in Prairie du Chien my Brother and I took the opportunity to also visit memories of the past. Here is a series of images that I hope you will enjoy and also appreciate.
|This is the entrance way to a pavilion that was a former Hotel and/or|
a Warehouse and now in use as a Party/Meeting Place.
|This is the back side of Villa Louis. It was constructed on|
a man-made hill to allow it to remain dry during the Spring
Floods of the Mississippi River. This museum is about
300 yards from the River.
|Of course, as Sailors we sought out "The Bar Car" only to|
quickly learn that it was not open.
|My Brother informed me that this Mississippi River|
dredge was last used about five years ago. It is anticipated
that this vessel will one day become a tourist attraction and/
or a museum.
|I did not plan to capture the reflection of this dredge, however|
I noted it as I prepared to publish this Post.
