Reading gives us a place to go when we have to stay where we are.
The Red Jacket Valley is located in Blue Earth County, the heart of southern Minnesota. With its wooded rolling hills and meandering rivers, this historic valley has endured many changes over the past 150 years.
Let your imagination wander back in time as the stories and pictures recreate an era when the first trains traveled through the countryside and school children played at the Indian Lake schoolhouse. The old pioneers have since passed on, but their stories are longing to be told.
