Co-op plans centennial celebration for Farmers Club building

On Oct. 8, 1914, Seymour residents gathered downtown to celebrate the opening of the Farmers Club building at 105 S. Chestnut St.

It was quite the occasion with bands playing, a parade, rides, booths set up by merchants in the downtown streets, and patriotic decorations everywhere, said local historian Kevin Greene, who has researched the history of many downtown buildings.

A hundred years later, that scene will be recreated as the community comes together to celebrate the building’s centennial anniversary.
