Watch the Cottage View sign lovingly dismantled

Oh, how I wish I could embed the really great video that the South Washington County (MN) Bulletin includes in its story of work crews dismantling the Cottage View Drive-In sign. Along with the projection equipment and the drive-in screen, the sign will be transported to Little Log House Pioneer Village in Hastings, where it will be restored and displayed.

According to the article, “Passersby on Highway 61 honked in solidarity of the beloved drive-in and little by little cars parked along East Point Douglas Road to watch the sign that had stood for more than 50 years come down.” There’s a lot more to read, and of course, you’ve just got to see that video, so go check it out!
