Dan Brown.... story of a local entrepreneur
By Katy Heinecke
Courier Staff Writer
After living a tough live as a youngster and growing up during the drought, Dan Brown decided early on in life that he was going to work hard to make a better life for himself. He was born one mile south of Buffalo Lake Resort and was raised on a ranch with seven siblings where his dad tried farming. The drought years made it nearly impossible to make any kind of a living and most families just focused on survival. The Brown kids walked 3.6 miles to country school, and every one of Walter and Lydia Brown’s children turned challenges into triumph by all becoming ambitious adults.
