Grant County Museum in Elbow Lake, Minnesota


Grant County Museum in Elbow Lake, Minnesota Grant County Museum in Elbow Lake, MinnesotaI love all museums, but I have a special place in my heart for the museum at Elbow Lake, Minnesota. Although Fort Pomme de Terre is no longer, a to scale model of the old Fort Pomme de Terre is on display at the museum. Patti Benson, the wonderful manager, steered me toward information about the soldiers killed in the spring of 1863–when the Sioux Uprising was supposed to be over. These inspired me to write POMME DE TERRE. The photo of the ox cart was my inspiration for BLOOMING PRAIRIE. If you’re in the Elbow Lake area, be sure to stop by the museum. It’s a gem. At Elbow Lake’s annual Flekkefest Celebration, tours are given to the old Pomme de Terre site. It’s a great day trip to learn more about Minnesota history.
