Emily, Day 3 – Regent

In Uncategorized on March 16, 2012 at 10:09 am

Last night we were able to stay in the Enchanted Castle in Regent, ND. We woke up early this morning to help the creator of the Enchanted Highway and Castle, Gary Greff, with the renovations he is making to his new motel. We cleaned rooms and helped where we could in the old school-turned-castle. After we finished our service project, we ate lunch and got to hear about where Gary draws his inspiration from and we were able to see first hand his passion for Regent and the surrounding area. He told us that we have now become a part of history and have left our mark not only in the Enchanted Castle, but also on the community of Regent. Then got a tour of the old school building in Regent and then made our way down town to visit the museum. We got to see tons of artifacts from not only Regent’s history, but the surrounding area’s history too. My favorite part what the original building which served as a pharmacy, soda fountain, general store, dentist office and hospital all at one time! I really enjoyed my time in western North Dakota and I’m excited for what’s to come.
