History Comes Alive in Richfield

This weekend it’s the Richfield Historical Society’s 24th annual Thresheree and Harvest Festival at the Richfield Nature and Historical Park.

It’s happening this Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17.

The Mill will be featured this weekend during the Thresheree event, according to Richfield Historical Society President Pete Sampson.

"This is actually the 150th year of the mill that we're celebrating this year. After almost 25 years we'll actually have it up and operational, or somewhat limited with it's operation and it's been our goal for a long time. And we will have it run during the Thresheree for the first time in probably 50 years, or more. It's great."                                                

Steam engine threshing and the old tractor parade are a part of it, along with horses plowing and many demonstrations.

There will be hands-on activities for the kids.

The History Room will have wedding pictures on display in the Welcome Center, which is something new this year.
