2011 Hastings Little Log House Show
The 21st annual Antique Power Show was held on July 29 to 31 at the Little Log House Pioneer Village in Hastings, Minnesota. The 160-acre Pioneer Village is the work of Steve and Sylvia Bauer, who have preserved 50 buildings on the site. The big attraction this year was Porky's drive-in. The landmark Saint Paul drive-in sat on University Avenue for nearly 60 years before closing in 2010. The Bauers purchased the building and moved it to the village, including an authentic re-creation of the pig sign. Porky's wasn't the only new building this year, there is also a new pavilion built using columns from Red Wing's old music hall and rafters from a 150-year-old church in Carver. The military display features a World War II era quonset hut, reconditioned and set up to resemble a barracks.
