SMALL TOWNS, TIME AND AGAIN, draw me in to explore.
It is the unpretentious genuineness, the make-do, no-frills approach to life that appeals to me. Folks in small towns typically are not trying to impress. Rather, they are simply living their lives—being good neighbors, working hard, getting by on what they have.
I’m not saying big city residents don’t do likewise. I just think the evidence of simpler living is more visible in our rural communities.
Nothing fancy about this vintage trailerhouse, apparently a satellite office for the sheriff’s department based in the county seat of Breckenridge 30 miles distant.
My husband and I were, should I say, awestruck when we pulled into the downtown business district and spotted this law enforcement headquarters. We’d never seen a sheriff’s office quite like this one.
I knew I’d found a gem, another slice of small-town Minnesota worthy of preserving via a photo shoot.
FYI: Check back tomorrow for more photos from Rothsay.
