Around The Corner with John McGivern

Jul 17 at 7PM on 10.1 & 36.2

This is an old river town, so sometimes it's tough to sort the facts from the myths. Ghosts in old jails, fish that fall from the sky on New Year's Eve that people kiss, grannies who play basketball, and a man that makes jerky out of just about every creature he catches: Only in Prairie du Chien are those things facts. John eats, shops, quilts, plays cards, gazes at the Mississippi, and goes to Mass at the oldest Catholic parish in Wisconsin. John Gurda told us that Prairie du Chien means "field of the dog." Since John McGivern took Spanish in high school instead of French, he thought it meant "a prairie of chins." See why we need John Gurda? (6 of 14)
