Cliff Knutson is proud of the renovated Fort Juelson site, west of Battle Lake, that is coming up on the first anniversary of its dedication, which took place June 11, 2011.


Knutson was the driving force for the renovation and has handed over the Friends of Fort Juelson role to Underwood historian, Ron Shebeck.

"This pleasant hill, with flowers and grasses, belongs to the people of Otter Tail County," said Knutson, who has authored a book about the fort built in 1876.
