A sunny send-off for Cottage View Drive-In sign


A sign of the times has seen its last days in Cottage Grove as crews on Tuesday dismantled the iconic Cottage View Drive-In sign piece by piece.

Along with the drive-in screen and equipment, the sign is being transported south to the Little Log House Pioneer Village in Hastings.

"It's a little bittersweet to watch the sign go down," drive-in owner Gerry Herringer said while watching roof of the sign detach. "We've had some great memories here. But, this too shall pass."
