Faye Auchenpaugh, who lives a few miles south of TRF, has restored a very old, one-room country schoolhouse that she attended as a child. She plans to rent it out for weddings, community events, etc. She moved the schoolhouse a few miles from its original location to her own farmstead and has added a bedroom, kitchen, bathrooms, etc. It’s been a labor of love, she said, but a very expensive labor of love.  photo by Eric Hylden/Grand Forks Herald
