2017 New Deal Festival Book available

Each year we publish a festival book where businesses who are AHI supporters buy an ad. Families connected to Arthurdale often remember their relatives and friends in the book. It is full of pictures and stories about early Arthurdalians and those who came after plus Eleanor Roosevelt stories.

This is the cover and a sample page from the 2017 edition. As long as supplies last, we can mail you a copy postpaid for only $5. (If you bought an ad, we mail you a copy for free.) It is also available during business hours in the office. Read the rest of this entry »

New Deal Festival 2017

The New Deal Festival is just around the corner! Join us in celebrating the New Deal, those who came before, and the history of Arthurdale.

Gates open at 10 am and the day will be filled with four live music groups, craft show, antique car and tractor show, hay and wagon rides, kid’s activities, farm petting zoo, and much more!
