Description 

One of two buildings within the Wabasha Commercial Historic District which originally served as a livery stable. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS MN-71)

Not quite sure what the HABS/HAER photos represent here, although some of those properties appear to have been razed since application was made to NPS for inclusion on the NRHP.

There was a festival going on the weekend I was there, including a car show. Not only will you see delightful buildings in my photos, you will also see several well restored vintage automobiles.
