You might have seen it. This crooked yellow house in southwest Fargo. But why is it there? And What does it mean? A whole lot more than you may think.

Many People drive by this crooked yellow house on 32nd Avenue and 42nd Street South everyday, but what many may not know is tucked underneath it is a 225 foot labyrinth. The Labyrinth is a sort of walking maze...almost half-a-mile long. Built in December of 2009, creator Stanley Hoglund says it hasn't gotten much use because nobody knows it's there. Hoglund paid for and built the Labyrinth himself as a way to give back to the community of Fargo. A community his family has lived in for four generations. He says the Labyrinth is a place for people to get away and let go of life's worries.

Stanley Hoglund – Built Labyrinth in 2009: “You just forget about everything else, it's just different. You wouldn't think anything walking around in a path that leads you to the center would do anything for you, but it actually does, it releases your stress.”

Stress that many of us are bound to have as this cool fall weather gradually turns into winter. The Labrynth takes about 8 minutes to complete.
