About 14,000 years ago in what is now central Minnesota, Ringo Lake was formed
from ice blocks in the out wash and till deposits of a receding glacier called the
Des Moines Lobe.
It is 774 acres in size and part of a chain of lakes which drain southward, eventually to the Minnesota then Mississippi River.
In the 1870's the Berg family settled on the north side of Ringo Lake, establishing a farm that is home to it's fifth generation of descendants. A few years earlier, my mother's ancestors (Swensons) settled on the south side of the lake and many of their descendants still call it home.
