Don't miss the 31st Annual Fall Fest at the Wiegert Prairie Farmstead on Sunday, August 24th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The theme this year is "A Taste of the Past." You can sample foods from the past as well as participate in lots of activities from potato digging to prairie rides.
The museum will have a display of items belonging to the Wiegert family at the Fall Fest. We have the 1897 wedding dress, wedding certificate and wedding photo of Fred Wiegert and Martha Kalsow as well as a wonderful display of Harry Wiegert's childhood toys.
Wiegert Farmstead is located near Palmer in Pocahontas County. For more information and directions to the farmstead, check out the website for the Pocahontas County Conservation Board. www.pocahontas-county.com/conservation
