The Minne Lusa House was a brainstorm of Beth and Sharon, who thought it would be a great idea to have a house in the neighborhood where neighbors could congregate. They bought a HUD house that was in extremely poor condition in August of 2010 and began renovation. They completely restored the old house to one that is now the pride of the neighborhood. This home is now used for meetings, cooking classes, canning classes and a morning coffee stop on Saturdays. They are always canning something and you can purchase a variety of home-made goods including: jelly, olives, mushrooms, vegetables, fruits, bascially anything that can be canned. The money is used to help support the house. The Minne Lusa House is open every Saturday from 9 to noon, so stop by at 2737 Mary St and have a cup of coffee with your neighbors. To keep up with current events and products for sale at the Minne Lusa House, just "friend" them on Facebook.
Another "friend" you may want to add to your Facebook family is the Minne Lusa Historic District. The Minne Lusa Historic District is interested in promoting this subdivision and was instrumental in obtaining the Historic District title to Minne Lusa.
