Memorial Day

Memorial Day Museum Activities

Museum activities include an open house, bake sale, food and beverages, demonstrations and carriage rides.  The McFarland Memorial Day Parade passes by the Museum and attracts many visitors.  Notice the pie safe (bottom photo), an historic artifact that is actually used to hold pies until they are sold at the bake sale.  Thanks to former Board member Christi Mykytyn for these and many other photographs.

Open House at the Museum

The McFarland Historical Society will hold its annual Memorial Day Open House at the museum, 5814 Main Street, McFarland, from 10 am to 3 pm.  Many new displays will be featured in the museum, plus the Norwegian log cabin and the farming display will be open.  A bake sale, food stand with hot dogs, ice cream and beverages, and carriage rides will be offered.  There will be a plant sale at the Larson House Museum (6003 Exchange Street) from 10 am to 4 pm and that museum will also be open from 1 to 4 pm.
