Madison in People's Lives

Vinnie Ream: I was born here in 1847, in a log cabin. My father was a civil servant and surveyer, and my Scottish mother was kept busy with guests that we hosted in our home as a stage-coach stop lodging place. My family operated one of the first hotels in Wisconsin, though calling it by such an official name is a bit misleading - guests had dinner with us and slept on our wood floor. Thus, I was constantly meeting an eclectic array of new people, many of whom were travelers with exciting stories. Growing up as a decidedly backwoods Wisconsin girl, I could never have imagined that quite soon, I would be traveling to some of the grandest cities in the world and running my own prestigious sculpting studios. When I was 14, my family left this town to move to Washington D.C.
