A Christmas Tale

Email

Once upon a time, there was a harbor — Prairie Harbor — a lonely, abandoned dock service on Mitchell Lake.

The harbor had a secret, a hidden secret. No one even knew about the secret besides John M. Prairie, the owner and founder of Prairie Harbor. He died in 1932.

Right after the business was up and running, a fire started, a big fire, and killed 23 people on the night of Aug. 9, 1872.
