Keillor’s Wisconsin retreat for sale

TOWN OF CLIFTON, Wis. (AP) — Garrison Keillor is selling his Wisconsin retreat along the St. Croix River in Pierce County for nearly $1 million.

The 11-acre property includes a main log home, a guest house, a studio and a detached office where the humorist and author wrote the novel “Wobegon Boy.”

The Town of Clifton property is less than an hour from Keillor’s main home in St. Paul, Minn. The property also has clay tennis courts and 460 feet of shoreline. Coldwell Banker real estate agent Joyce Peterson tells the Pioneer Press ( ) she doesn’t know why the popular radio personality is selling the property.

Keillor is in his 38th season of his show “A Prairie Home Companion,” heard on nearly 600 public radio stations across the U.S.
