Kittson County Historical Society

Kittson profiles and photos from the past and present

This was my grandparents store Dan & Ida Ostrand.  They had 3 daughters Duryne, LaVerle, Mae.  My Mom was  LaVerle.  This store holds such a special place in my heart.  I wish it were still there to show my children.  I do have some photos of  Grandpa & Grandma behind the counter, what great memories this brings back.  My Grandparents would board up and lock the store in the winter months and come to California and stay, we looked forward to their arrival.  The store closed when Grandpa had his stroke and they moved to California permanently with us.  I remember hearing that my Grandparents donated an Old plow to some Historical place and there was a plaque with their names on it stating it was donated by them?  Any ideas where this location would be???    Thank you for adding the Photo of the store, made my day :o).

Cherie, Welcome to the web page.  I contacted the museum director this morning and learn their records confim that they have some equipment on hand, donated by your grandparents. The records show it as a "Field level".  When I get an opportunity I will locate it in the equipment shed and get a photograph and post it on this web page.  Glenn

Thank you...
