Speechless Sunday(Almost)--Picture Perfect House at Como Zoo

Real Estate Agent with Boardman Realty Minnesota License#90858

Como Zoo Water Wheel Garden by Teri Eckholm Realtor

As far back as I can remember, this stone house has been a part of the Como Park Zoo. I don't know if the building was ever a working water wheel but from the discoloration, it probably was at some point. Now, it is just a beautiful back drop for this colorful flower garden. It is near the entrance to the zoo from the Conservatory Parking lot across from the outside Oraguatan exhibit. Como Park is unique as admission is still FREE though donations are gladly accepted.

Teri...I love it!  I love very cool photos like this. I loved fishing up there when I was a kid.  Great look...very rustic!

I love the picture, Teri, and yes, it definitely looks like it did function as a water wheel once.

Hi Teri,

This looks like a picture you would envision in a fairy tale "The enchanted cottage where the princess lived!" Where I used to live, they had stone houses but they were not nearly a cute as this one. Thanks for sharing. Happy Holidays!

Happy Labor Day Teri...  Wow great pic!  Looks like something from a magazine or maybe found on a fairyland movie!  May the force of the Rain be with you ~
