Found these photos at the Historical Society & made copies for the Ag Society to have. This is our local volunteer fire department--we still have just a volunteer company today. Please click on the photos to enlarge--I uploaded the files too large & so I had to post these in the small size in order to post all 3.
Everything used to be shown ( flowers, canning etc.) in these tents. We then went to Quonset huts & then to permanent buildings. Below is another view. We have added a few parcels of land over the years, so now we have approx. 120 acres.
