Back to travel pictures

August 2006
A visit to West Salem, Wisc., once the home of Hamlin Garland
Garland spent part of his boyhood in Osage, Iowa, 20 miles from where I grew up. My family visited the Garland museum there a month earlier.
Garland's writing desk, and Garland working at it.
This property and others of interest in beautiful West Salem are lovingly maintained by the West Salem Historical Society.
The Garland family is buried here
