Gilman and Clara Berg Aaberg
All 13 children were raised on the farm. The children tell numerous stories of playing on the nearby rock overlooking the homestead. Sunny, rainy, or snow covered the rock was their playground. In 1968 the State of Minnesota purchased the farm from the Aaberg family, turning it into part of today's Glacial Lakes State Park. Gilman Aaberg passed away in 1973 at the age of 86. Clara Aaberg passed away in 1983 at the age of 90.
