CHS Heritage Festival
The Caledonia Historical Society would like to thank everyone who participated in our 7th Annual Heritage Festival this past weekend. Whether your favorite part was the historic buildings and their artifacts, the Civil War re-enactors, the antique tractors and old fire engines, the vintage sawmill, the youth activities or the delicious food, it was wonderful that guests of all ages were having a wonderful time enjoying the family fun.
As our major fundraising event that helps us collect preserve and share the history of Caledonia, we sincerely appreciate you joining us and supporting our efforts to preserve the past for future generations. We look forward to sharing the buildings of our Village and the history they hold during our final open house of the season on September 24th and our Festival next year.
