I loved going down mayo memory lane. I really enjoyed learning and thinking about what it would be like during the golden age of the Mayo brothers. I would do this tour again

I'm not sure. Contact Olmsted county historical society. There is a good place to rent nearby, called the mayowood stone barn. It's used for events and weddings.
