The 11th Annual Thresheree, sponsored by the Richfield Historical Society, will be held on September 19th and 20th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The thresheree is sponsored by the Richfield Historical Society and is in the beautiful Richfield Historical Park. Parking is in the adjacent Richfield Nature Park located on Hwy. 164, 1/2 mile north of Hwy. 167 (watch for signs). Admission is $5, 12 and under free. You may stroll past reconstructed log buildings, across the Coney Creek and past several historical displays or you may ride the people-mover to get to the Historical Park where most of the action is. The Motz log house and the Messer log barn are now completed and will be dedicated at 11 a.m. (one each day). Enjoy a pancake breakfast from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. each day ($6) with maple syrup made this spring from trees in the park.
Enjoy some of these events: field threshing, log sawing, tractor parade, Abe Lincoln and Mark Twain programming, schnitzelbank demonstration, pie contest, steam engines, music, crafters, silent auction, backporch sale, and tours of the Messer/Mayer Grist Mill and restored miller's house, animals.
What is a thresheree? A celebration of the harvest season of bygone years. But now it is sooooooo much more! Come and see!
