Stop 211 - McDonald Creek

Stop 211 – McDonald Creek Panel Introduction, 1.4 minutes.

A three-foot wide by two-foot tall angled panel, three-feet high, stands at the right side of a 10-foot wide concrete bridge over a small creek with four-foot tall metal railings on either side.

A full-color background photograph fills the panel, showing a tree-lined creek in the foreground with a number of horses grazing on its opposite banks under a clear blue sky in the fall. Fenced-off open fields stretch behind the creek to several white farm buildings and two tall grey silos in the background. A caption reads: “The Molitor family farm, 1976.”

Text at top left of the panel reads:
