Enjoyed driving around Pipestone's historic district. Especially enjoyed their City Hall -- red brick -- think it might be pipestone.

They just don't make buildings like this any more. It's great to see that they are being preserved and not torn down. Check out the Ghost Walk

They just don't make buildings like this anymore. Check out the gargoyles they are fun to see. Don't forget to stop into the Calumet for something to eat or drink after your tour.
