History Fest: June 22, 2014
On Sunday, June 22, 2014, from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm, The Chelsea Area Historical Society held the 2nd annual Chelsea History Fest for the community at Timbertown Park. The day was a
free, family-friendly celebration of history.
The highlight of the afternoon was a vintage baseball game between the Monitor Baseball Club of Chelsea and the Scrub 9 featuring local businessmen and community members. The Merries,
an all-women Chelsea vintage baseball club, made their debut as well.
There were also displays from area businesses that have been part of Chelsea's history for many years. Don Cole brought his 1916 Hearse, there were artifacts from Vogel's and Foster's on display,
the Chelsea Police Department brought many items that were saved from the old police station and many items were on display from Lane Animal Hospital. For the kids, The Little Conductor's train
was available for rides and there were "photo ops" of the kids dressed up in costumes from the Purple Rose "in" the Hollier Eight replica built by Jasen King and his father. There were free hot
dogs and samples of Johnny Cake and Ginger Beer for tasting. A good time was had by all! See the photos below for highlights of the day.
