The Highway 212 communities of Buffalo Lake, Hector, Bird Island, Olivia, Danube, Renville, Sacred Heart, and Granite Falls are banding together to host the first annual “Follow the Yellowstone Trail: Art, Antiques, and History Escape” August 9, 10, and 11. The event organizers hope to “promote the intersection of art and history to lift up community legacies and encourage tourism.”

In this interview, we chat with Yellowstone Trail Alliance Creative Director Jess Gorman about the history of the trail and what to expect from the events this weekend. For more information, see the flyer below or visit the Yellowstone Trail Alliance Facebook page.
