I’ve said it before, but if you’re ever in the Chippewa Valley, a visit to the Chippewa Valley Museum is worth your mileage. It’s an unobtrusive structure settled close to the earth beneath big white pines remnant of the lumbering days of yore (that filled nearby Half Moon Lake with sawdust). Their Farm Life exhibit (and the word exhibit doesn’t convey the half of it) has attracted national attention. I don’t know how to describe it other than to say it’s real, heartfelt, and right. They’ve just posted some YouTube clips to convey a sense of it.
