"Minnie the Mover" …or "Grinders Girl Graces Gazebo"

Look who’s back in town. Yes, the Minnie Pearl statue is now at the Grinders Switch Winery. Check out the Minnie Pearl statue located in the gazebo on the grounds of the Grinders Switch Winery located in Hickman County. Minnie went visiting the Commodore Hotel in Perry County, but for the sake of Uncle Nabob, Brother, and her fellers, we hope she is back in Hickman County to stay. If you would like to visit Minnie and stay for a few hours (or a few days), check out some other things to do at http://www.musiccitybackyard.com/ .
