Where’s The Pie? Iconic Northern Minnesota Roadside Sign Taken Down
What's cool about the sign being taken down is that when the sign was taken down, it revealed some history hidden from view!
The post from Betty's Pies shows the process of taking the sign down, and revealing the original Betty's Pies sign underneath the current sign! Other than the color, the older sign is a lighter shade of blue, nothing has changed! Since 1956, Betty's Pies has had essentially the same sign, hanging out along Highway 61.
The classic old pie sign had to come down today in preparation for Highway 61 roadwork to begin next week by MnDOT.
Different but similar signs have been on this stretch of Highway since 1956. One of the pics shows the original sign (light blue) behind the current sign (darker blue), an interesting find.
Betty's has become synonymous with going "Up North", travelers from all corners of the state, head to Two Harbors to take in the sights and scenes of nature, and grab a slice of pie along the way.
If you are curious as to how Betty's got its start, here is what the business posted about it on its social media account:
