Kind of nostalgic: Glenwood man begins improvement to downtown Willmar landmark

Email

WILLMAR -- Dean Peterson of Glenwood grew up in Kerkhoven but hung out as a kid on Fourth Street in downtown Willmar.

"If you wanted to be where the action was, you went to Fourth Street,'' recalls Peterson, 55. "That was before the Kandi Mall was built. It was a happening place. All the main businesses were right there.''

One of those businesses was the Willmar Theater, a grand place to watch movies, as many locals will testify.
