7/26/2013 10:28:00 AM Security State Bank of Wanamingo restored at Bauer's
Daily events and attractions are set for the 23rd Annual Little Log House Antique Power Show, held six miles south of Hastings.
New to the Pioneer Village this year is a partially restored Security State Bank from Wanamingo. The 1918 bank burnt on Christmas Day, 2000, but Steve and Sylvia Bauer obtained some of the stone work and the vault to be restored in smaller fashion and used for historical display at the grounds they have built on Sylvia's family farm. The interior has the wood teller cages from the Peterson, MN bank, which the Bauers picked up in another trip. Historic dividend checks from the bank will be on display.
Of other local area note, also new this year is the old Red Wing fire bell which dates back to 1872.
Also new to this year is the Cottage View Drive-In sign. Plan to spend the day visiting the many attractions which include a children's barnyard, Sylvia's gardens with 1000s of blooms, threshing, flea market and crafts, blacksmith shop, one-room schoolhouse, the original Porky's Drive-In Diner, Red-Green Tractor and Engine Show. Saturday will feature a tractor and truck pull.
Events happening daily include living history demonstrations, The Squires Band noon-4:00 p.m., re-enactments, 11:00 tractor parade, and Miesville St. Joseph's church pancake breakfast and lunchstand.
Show days are July 26, 27 and 28, 8 a.m. -5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, with a weekend pass available for $20. Kids 12 and under are free.
