The town of Copas was named after its first settler, John Copas, who built a log store there in 1854. The railroad came to Copas in 1886 and new buildings began to spring up along the line near the Copas depot. The school was built in 1876 and operated until 1945. Copas was eventually absorbed into Scandia; the Copas depot was razed in 1963, along with most of the other buildings that made up the town. Today, the old Copas school house is home to the Bluebell Mercantile—a pretty little country store selling home goods and gifts. .
Oh fall you lovely thing you, why have you been so cold this year? 🍂🍁 Shoulda worn boots on this nature walk but I’m in denial. All the coffee and all the pumpkin bread lately. Also it snowed yesterday, and I’m officially stoked for Christmas and cookies and lights and family and Nat King Cole and more cookies and yea. Halloween is when I get out my Christmas music (because who can wait and I’m not too fond of the holiday so this is how I redeem it) and I can’t wait 🎄🎶 #christmasissoonerthanyouthink
