"Blind Man on the Prairie." With Richard Moen April 9, 2022 at 1:00-2:00 PM* Livsreise Auditorium “A Blind Man on the Prairie” tells the story of a Norwegian immigrant who grew up blind on Koshkonong Prairie in the mid-1800s. Henry Hendrickson arrived with his family at age four in 1847, became educated at the school for the blind in Janesville, and was as mischievous as any boy. Henry found success in making and selling corn brooms in several cities and later in tuning and selling pianos and organs during the first half of his life. His wit, dry humor, and philosophical insight reflect his education and his intellect. Richard H. Moen, a local historian of the Rockdale Wisconsin area, shares a sense of kinship in the story of his great-grandmother’s brother Henry, whose paths crossed those of his own youth in Rockdale, Christiana, Oakland, and Albion, Wisconsin. *Please note- Seating is limited to fully vaccinated individuals for this in-person event.
