Rebuilding the Ganser home

About two miles up Highway 2, just a five-minute drive from downtown Two Harbors, the Gansers spent almost a half-century and raised five children in a little one-story house.


When the parents passed away, they left the home to all five of their kids. Many members of the Ganser brood have moved to other locales, but until Jan. 25, Otmar was living in the family home. He was out of the house that Saturday when fire broke out.
