A project that's been in the talking stages for more than a decade is now coming to fruition in Akeley.

An imposing log structure, signifying the village's genesis, will serve as memorial gardens and a welcome center at the intersection of Highways 34 and 64.


Contractor Bruce Beckley has been at work the past few weeks, donating labor, with stonework and log staining to be completed, come spring.

Three flags will also fly at the site.
