Weathered

I always sort of swooned at the sight of the classic barn structures in central and northern Minnesota, where everything seemed rustic and weathered and made to age gracefully.

–Richard Dean Anderson

When walking through old towns, the weathered buildings and board sidewalks offer a glimpse into a time when life seemed slower and easier.  Often I wonder if I were born about a century to late…

In the town of Fairplay, a collection of old buildings were moved to area at the edge of town.  The buildings were saved from various mountain hamlets and ghosts towns from around the area.  This new borough is called South Park, and visitors may visit this setting.
