Great Stuff About Waseca...

fire deptWaseca, Minnesota, home of the Waseca 1/3 Iron & Sprint triathlons, is a wonderfully quaint community.

It promulgates its "Old World" charm via the steadfast resistance to all forms of modernization. It's fire department (photo), for instance, looks much the same today as it did in the Lincoln era.
