Frederic Area Historical Society Announces Pie Social Aug. 17

Monday, August 5th, 2013 at 7:39 am

The Frederic Area Historical Society will be serving pie and refreshments at the 1901 Frederic Soo Line Depot from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, Saturday, Aug. 17. The pie social is an annual fundraiser to help with the operation of the Frederic Area Museum.

Held in conjunction with the Frederic Craft Fair and the North Land Ambulance fall cookout in Depot Square Park, many varieties of home baked pies are offered. Live music will be playing, and there are adventures in history for everyone. Tour a Soo Line wide-vision caboose that is on display, check out a log cabin built in 1885, or see what Frederic’s first library looked like.

The Frederic Area Museum is open weekends and holidays in downtown Frederic from Memorial Day weekend through leaf season in October, and has many items on display connected to the history of the area and the Soo Line railroad that developed Northwest Wisconsin at the start of the last century. Admission to the museum is free.

For more information on the Frederic Area Historical Society, how to become a member, or volunteer a little time to preserve the history of Frederic, call 715-327-4892, 715-327-4158 or check out the depot link at www.fredericwi.com
