    Governor Visits The
    Driftless Area Education & Visitor Center

    Governor Terry Branstad toured the Driftless Area Education and Visitor Center  on June 16, 2016.  Larry Shellhammer, Board of Supervisor member, addressed the Governor and stated " My hope for this building is that visitors will come in just like Governor Branstad did, walk up to this window here and say 'WOW'! Speakers informed the Governor on the history and importance this center will have on not only Allamakee County, but its surrounding counties and visitors.  After the Governor  toured the Center, he then addressed the group and responded to several questions. "Thank you for inviting me, I'm really impressed, If you build it, they will come" stated the Governor from the Field of Dreams movie. Branstand stated he is excited to come back and bring his family to see the finished Center.
