On Wednesday, July 30, Gammelgården Museum intern Reece Almendinger left Scandia to begin a three-day, 47-mile walk from the museum grounds in Scandia to Braham, Minnesota.

The walk was intended to show people that if an immigrant in the 1860s needed to get somewhere, he probably walked. Photo by Mary Bailey.
