Tib’s house! Isn’t it pretty? Those who have seen the illustrations in the book might be wondering where the tower is. But there was never any tower. Lois Lenski “borrowed” a tower from other houses in the neighborhood.
Sara and I especially loved the glass porch doors. We thought of opening a B&B with a tea house. Wouldn’t it be lovely?
Just across from Tib’s house is the site of the school Betsy & Tacy attended. This is not the school building they attended, though.
Here’s an example of a fabulous tower like the one Lois Lenski borrowed.
I adored this mid-century.
This poor house is undergoing some hard times.
We stopped at Lincoln Park, which looks nothing like it did in Maud’s day,
I’m noticing that Minnesota loves a historical sign. Most are quite long.
Here is a new fountain, to replace the previous one, blown over in a storm. It now makes the sign (which says, “no traces of the soldiers’ memorial remains) incorrect.
The rest of the park.
