BENSON -- Swift County will take over ownership of a wayside rest that's currently owned by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.


The commissioners voted last week to purchase the Pomme De Terre Wayside Rest for $1 from the state.

The site includes a restroom and about nine acres of land that's mowed for hay. The land is located about 20 miles west of Benson and eight miles north of Appleton.
