If I'd thought about I'd have realized that a birthplace says more about the parents than the offspring. The story of Lawrence Welk's parents immigrating and homesteading is at least as interesting as that of Lawrence's success. The friendly and knowledgable volunteer guides make this...More

This farm probably was not kept as it was when Lawrence was a boy. The buildings are there , if moved around. It is a productive farm today. The buildings look in great shape. There was a port-a-potty open for use. It would be a...More

It has been too modernized. Lawrence would not recognize it!! It does have an old windmill that is interesting; the barn has been moved in; the buildings are paint a nice clean white. I can't think it looked like that when he was born.
