A Wadena County landmark has turned 80 years old this month.

The grotto at St. Hubert's Catholic Church was completed in Sept. 1931. It is one of the largest grottos in the Diocese of St. Cloud, if not the largest, being 35 feet long, 19 feet wide and 10 feet thick with a 6-foot foundation.


Parishioner Vera Malone said the grotto is a piece of art and the rocks were meticulously chosen.
