On Sunday May 15th, a Spring Fling and hands on demonstration will be held at the Busti Historical Society campus in Busti from 11 am to 4 pm. Several old time crafts including spinning, weaving, and candle dipping will be demonstrated. Attendees will be encouraged to try their hand at mastering these special skills. The gristmill will be in operation and you can purchase grain that will be milled throughout the day. It is anticipated that workhorses will be performing, and antique tractors will be in operating. The Country Store will be open and there will be food and drink available for a fee.

The Hazeltine Library will be participating with a book sale, and copies of the newly published GRIT AND GRAIN, by local author Helen Ebersole will be available for purchase.

This promises to be a fun and educational experience for the whole family. Admission is free, and area residents are encouraged to participate in this unique experience that will take all attendees back in time.

The Mission of the Busti Historical Society is to gather, preserve and protect the historical artifacts of the Town of Busti, and to operate the gristmill and educate visitors about Pioneer and 19th Century Life in Busti. The Society meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7 pm, and all are welcome to join.
