Where was the first school in Farwell? Where was the first house in Farwell? Did you know there was a Studebaker car dealership in the village? How many hotels were in the village? Did you know there were two ice houses?
These are just a few of the questions that will be answered when you take the Village of Farwell Walking Tour. Some people may prefer to drive.
Marilyn Pitchford spent her entire life in Farwell. She was very fond of her community and always wanted a tour to teach others the history of Farwell. Unfortunately, it wasn’t done while she was alive, but the task has been completed in memory of her and her long-time association with the Farwell Area Historical Museum.
On Saturday, June 20, the museum will be open from noon to 4 p.m. and booklets will be available for visitors to pick up and go on their own self-guided tour. The booklet covers 29 places in Farwell’s present and past with photos. There is a suggested donation of $3 for the booklets.
Refreshments will be served.
