“She Who Waits” Node near Glenwood’s City Park
Local fictional hero “Princess Minnewaska,” the main character in Alice Thorson’s 1901 romance novel The Tribe of Pezhekee stands and waits for her love to return from Duluth. The bronze statue, entitled “She Who Waits”, was a gift from Glenwood State Bank to the community in 2011 and was created by Linde Egle of Thedford, Nebraska.
This Node along the lake is one of a series of lovely spots to rest and enjoy the surroundings. The nodes are a project completed by Glenwood and Beyond.
Glenwood & Beyond was first organized to prepare for the Minnesota Design Team (MDT) visit in June 2006. At the conclusion of the visit, the group transitioned to implementing some of the projects that the MDT recommended, as well as other community improvement projects that arise.
Glenwood & Beyond consists of many local volunteers that serve on the Executive Committee, Coordinating and Implementation Committee (CIC) and Project Committees – all who meet on a regular basis.
