Where is Robert on Day 3?Posted: June 13, 2014
Robert was painting in an area known as “Little Egypt.” It is near the small town of Preston. At the end of the 19th century the crops failed in the surrounding area so people came to “Little Egypt” to get grain. It was compared to the Biblical Egypt and that was how it got it’s nickname. Robert loves this area. While Robert was painting the neighbor came out and told him that this particular farm was where Ezra Taft Benson was born and raised. Ezra Taft Benson was Secretary of Agriculture during the Eisenhower Administration and was also 13th President of the LDS Church.
