More School Houses

Saturday was a stormy day here in the Twin Cities so we 
decided to go to the outlet mall and Cabelas in Owatonna. 
The outlet mall turned out to be a bust but Tim enjoyed shopping
the fishing section at Cabelas.

To get back home we decided to head east.
This is Minnesota farm country at it'smost beautiful with spring green rolling hills and hidden valleys on curved roads.  The new rows of corn were about 4 inches tall.  I would have taken a picture but I forgot my phone!  I didn't bring my camera because we were going shopping NOT  shunpiking! We crossed in and out of Steele, Dodge, Olmsted, Wabasha and Goodhue counties.  We went to the Pine Island Cheese Fest. Sorry no pictures of that either.
By and By we passed 2 One room schools for sure.  One I'm not so sure.

I took these pictures with Tim's phone : )

Merton Town Hall is the first red marker on the map.

 The sign on this school house says: Belvidere Town Hall.
Look at the map for Belvidere.  

The third structure was pretty boring.  No real signs of it being a school at all. No signs of a large cloak room or a water pump present.  In fact it had a large dumpster which I framed out of view, therefore I'm pretty sure it was built to be just a town hall.

Ellington Town Hall.
Ellington is just right of Merton on the map.  There is a star where this building is located.
See the corn rows?
