That didn’t happen for the hamlet, located south of what is now the Cottage Grove Public Works complex on West Point Douglas Drive, where there currently are 13 homes and the Langdon School that was closed in 1955. The school, now owned by a 3M employees union and home to chemical addiction support groups, still stands, a reminder of a community’s determination to educate its children.
