Two-headed calf.

Two-Headed Calf, Antique Radios

Steele County Museum has many treasures, such as artifacts of secret societies (including Freemasons and Odd Fellows), a huge collection of antique radios, and a two-headed calf! This place was amazing. I spent an hour-and-a-half here, and could easily have stayed for four.

A Masonic beheading ax in the museum is a noteworthy item. It may have been made by this company.
