Town Named After Teenicide Legend

Well the town is there, sure. But on the way into it, on Rt. 35 coming north from Stockholm, Maiden Rock Bluff State Natural Area and the scenic overlook on the Mississippi River has info about Maiden Rock. From up there you can see the mighty Mississippi and some nice views.
