History And Recreation In Elk River
The attractions outdoors are major. The Oliver H. Kelly Farm, still in operation today and ranked #1 attraction in Elk River, is right on the banks of the Mississippi River. It lets visitors see all the old 1860s processes of butter churning, old-fashioned field plowing with oxen and horse powered threshing. Farm stuff! No electricity! Everyone gets a kick out if it. Your apartment will have electricity. But have a look-see at how people used to get things done, and wander around down by the river through the oak forest and prairie. Then take a hike! After exploring any number of these wild outdoor getaways, warm your feet back home by the fireplace if you have one, (out there, if your apartment's in the boonies...) or warm your spirits with some chums at one of the many downtown bars if you're nearby there, drinking a dark & stormy, or a martini, or something....
