Walking through Rice Park in St. Paul on a very wintry February day, I happened upon one of the most whimsical literary tributes I’ve ever seen – a sculpture of Marcie, of Peanuts fame, reading on a park bench.  Behind her, Peppermint Patty plays football.  These two sculptures, and a number of additional sculptures of Peanuts characters in nearby Landmark Plaza, honor Charles M. Schulz, who grew up in St. Paul and created the world-famous Charlie Brown books.

See the California page for more on Charles M. Schulz.

Landmark Plaza is the fifth stop on Minnesota Trail Part One!
