Not enough snow for a sleigh - The Belle Plaine Historical Society Christmas party was held at the Hooper-Bowler-Hillstrom House Sunday afternoon. The traditional sleigh and cutter rides provided by the Prairie Down Charioteers turned out to be wagon rides because the ground was covered with just light snow which has since melted.
The Carriage House Museum built by the Belle Plaine Historical Society on the grounds of the Hooper-Bowler Hillstrom House is all ready on the outside. Next, the society will turn its attention to filling up the inside.
