Winona Daily News - 6.0

Winona Daily News - 6.0:
"Being a native of Rushford, Minn., we had a similar situation. We had an old dilapidated two-story depot sitting on abandoned railroad tracks next to our fire station. A lot of people wanted to tear it down, but luckily my father, Alton Morken, an antique collector and local historian, saw the potential of saving a big part of our history and formed a group. They got the rights for pull-tabs at our local municipal liquor store for a few years, among other fundraisers, and restored it. Today it’s the hub of the Root River bike trail, half used by the DNR and the other half as a Rushford Museum."
