What an interesting story. I love reading about stuff like this.

I find it a amazing people are organizing festivals around a cow who produced a lot of milk in the early 1900's. Or maybe not.

It might be worth a visit.

Thanks for stopping by!
I heard about this place, and it became a must-see for me. It sounds like Colantha got quite the send-off when she died, and I'm not surprised to see that the PR folks at the Village thought the story was a great and unique way to draw visitors there. The hospital campus was pretty dismal looking for years, so it is nice to see something going on there these days. The area Colantha is at is still quite undeveloped, though.
