"Where You Trade With Yourself" Eye Catcher" Stops Many/Travelers At Bier$tedt|Farm|j When Mrs C. L. Bierstedt of Fenton asked her husband to buy the church replica float used 'In the 1954 Kossuth Centennial parade, little did she realize thtft a yea'r later she would have her farm yard dotted with miniature figures. Mr Bierstedt answered the question with the familiar phrase, "It costs too much!" But, Mrs Bierstedt had made up her mind. If she couldn't have that one, she'd make one of her own, which she did. The church is fashioned after the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran church of Fenton. Mrs Bierstedt had always been handy with the saw and hammer as well as having an artistic vein. From the church she expanded to a complete family church scene. To the right of the church, pictured above, is a father and mother with their two daughters riding in a carriage. Next, the bride and bridegroom on their way to be married 1 ; a lumberwagon built according to the way Mrs Bierstedt and her family went to church when she was a child; and then the last item in her collection, a replica of one of the first autos. Patterns for all the people and wagona were done freehand by Mrs Bierstedt. The horses were done from a pattern Mrs Bierstedt ran across while traveling. In the background can be See,n a' well which she built using old bricks from their chimney which was torn down. Cutting out of the wooden figures was all done by her with nothing more than a co- pen saw. The Bierstedts have an electric saw, but Mrs Bierstedt confesses that she just can't manipulate one. Their home, which is located on highway 44 just two miles north of Fenton, has had many people stop along the roadside to view the fascinating handiwork, Mrs Bierstedt has people from a distance register in a book and these total more than 250 including names from Cana- da and Kansas. Just last Monday Mrs Bierstedt counted 23 cars that stopped. For an idea that steadily has grown in only a year's time, Mrs Bierstedt may someday have a yard that will be known from coast to coast.
