This view of the park from the Mineral Point Public Library resurrected memories long asleep in the furtherest recesses of my mind. As a young man I had once boldly ridden a camel in the park thanks to the Shriners who had sponsored an event by the library. We were in Mineral Point to visit Fairy’s parents who lived there at the time.
Many others had passed this way long before us as was discovered in the archives of the public library. The curator kindly searched for photos and shared information as we reflected on those people of the past: American Indians, miners, merchants, farmers, artists, and, of course, the couple that had given me my wife. Though I have never lived here, a precious part of me is forever entwined in this community’s history.
