The episode begins with a story about the Prospect House in Battle Lake as told by Jay Johnson, the descendent of the original builder of the house, civil war veteran “Cap” Colehour. The Prospect House was recently added to the National Register of Historic Places and features a Civil War museum containing thousand of artifacts. Describing years spent picking through his family’s artifacts Johnson said: “There’s always a little gold nugget in there somewhere and it just keeps you going and going and going. It’s like a giant picture puzzle with pieces missing all over the place that you keep finding and say ‘I got another one! I know where this goes’."
The second segment of the episode features a story about how the community of Morris formed a cooperative to save, remodel and operate the Morris Theater. According to David Ericksen, a professor at the U of M Morris who serves on the board of the Theater Cooperative: “This is a really fun building for a town like this and it was one I wanted to keep going because I want the movies in town and I’m willing to do my bit to help out. It’s fun!"
The final segment of the episode features nationally recognized artist Marcella Rose of Pelican Rapids. Rose is representative of a growing number of professionals who are returning from accomplished careers elsewhere to their roots growing up on the prairies of western Minnesota and eastern South Dakota. According to Rose: "When I’m painting I don’t hear, see, feel anything else. I’m just there and I believe that that is a connection with the divine. I would like for everyone to have that same experience and find their own path, their own excitement, their own passion."
