Keeping the Legend Alive


At first glance, Le Sueur, Minn., might seem like an unlikely new home for United States Federal Aviation Administration type certificates H-1, 2H1 and 2H3, which for 50 years hung on the wall of the Bell Helicopter factory in Hurst, Texas. Yet, this tiny, largely farming-oriented community, located some 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, has been home to some pretty big successes, including being the original home of the “Jolly Green Giant” of canned and frozen vegetable fame, and being the place where Dr. William Mayo (founder of the Mayo Clinic) started his first medical practice.
