Mission Grove Inn, Plymouth, Minnesota

This image shows another angle on the Inn that is shown in the first posting of this series. In this case, the purpose of the building is made more explicit by the name: Little Mother’s Inn. This was a common term for women pregnant out of wedlock or below the age of majority who needed a place to go to avoid scandal from the pregnancy. It’s not certain that this is the intended purpose of the name in this case.

There is no description on the back of this card.

–The outside was designed to look rustic, with the use of raw wood railings and the uneven masonry details.

This image likely dates from the 1930s.
