Rodney Hanson of Vergas, MN has written "A
Collection of Memories". With his consent, we are using some
of his writings on this web site.
Rodney Hanson has lived in Vergas since he
was age 8. His dad, Hank Hanson, ran the Hardware Hank Store
from which Hanson's Plumbing and Heating evolved. Rodney has
officially retired from Hanson's but goes to work every day.
Two sons, Robin and Jeff, and a daughter Jolyn Priem now run
the business. Rodney and his wife Olive (Antonsen), who live
on Rose Lake, also have another grown son, Marty, who has a
home-based plumbing and heating business.
Many thanks to Rodney for this historical
information about Vergas, Minnesota!
There is more information that I have been
researching. Here is some more Memories of Vergas:
