Somewhere in Makinen heading towards two harbors I saw a woman in 1800s clothing standing by a house. It seemed out of time. She looked at me as I passed with a puzzled look almost like what is that machine he's driving. Didn't seem haunted more like a glimpse into the past.|

When I was young my mom and I were heading home down Hwy. 16 just west of Makinen, MN. This was in the early 70s. We just passed two old abandoned homes on the right side of the road just before the river. I noticed as we past the second home and old woman coming out the door of a shed that stood to the left of the house. She was dressed in a brown top, rust colored skirt, green shawl wrapped around her head. She moved rather slowly at first, and in a blink of an eye she had moved close to the house. She seemed to disappear around the corner of the house.
I asked my mom if she saw her, and she said no. She added that no one lives there. She said when she was a little girl she remembered visiting an older woman with her mom who lived in the house back in the 30s. She said the older woman dressed like that. Both homes are long gone and now replaced with newer homes. I often think of that vision every time I drive past that property. Submitted by Brian.
