The Winona Foundation fondly remembers Opel Finch
Opel Finch passed this last winter and the Winona Foundation will miss working with her. She was the force and and the heart behind the Pickwick Mill. The Winona Foundation has been lucky enough to have worked with Opel since 1983.
The Pickwick Mill was built in 1855 and fell out of use over the years until Opel and a fine crew painstakingly rebuilt it to it's original condition. It is well worth a trip to see and experience history.
Thank you Opel. We remember you fondly.
LAIRD NORTON FAMILY:
The Winona Foundation is proud to be active in and around the beautiful "island" city of Winona since 1983, continuing the family legacy since 1855.
