    Waseca Alums: Tracing the history of the Waseca Prince Popcorn Wagon: A Timeline, with memories
    By Chuck Lucas

    People who lived in or grew up in Waseca from the early 1910s through 1971 are certain to remember the popcorn wagon that was parked uptown either alongside Didra's Drug Store (the early years) or alongside the Rendezvous Cafe (the later years). Unfortunately, the popcorn wagon was lost to Waseca. It was sold and left Waseca in 1973, was restored by some dedicated retirees in Mason City, Iowa, and is now located in the Meredith Willson Music Man Square, Mason City, Iowa.
