Mel Sando, director of the Lake County Historical Society, and volunteer Todd Lindahl spent much of the summer restoring this caboose, which is located outside of the society in Two Harbors. The restoration was funded by a grant from the Two Harbors Area Fund and another from Cooperative Light and Power. Submitted photo

The display outside of the Lake County Historical Society is looking fine and festive these days.

Thanks to nearly $5,000 from the LaBounty Family Fund, part of the Two Harbors Area Fund, and money from Cooperative Light and Power, the society was able to restore and repaint the ore car and caboose that stand next to the society on South Avenue in Two Harbors. The two pieces are now a shiny, vibrant red.
