Norfolk Historical Society celebrates WIN 2017

At the Historical Society’s booth at the Farmer’s Market during Weekend in Norfolk, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the first market on the lawn of Town Hall, visitors saw a price list from the first farmer’s market in 1917, and how food was used to help win World War I for the allied powers.

The Salisbury Band’s Senior Quickstep Hot Shots played patriotic and popular tunes on the Village Green outside the Historical Society, Board President Barry Webber led a walking tour focusing on town sights related to World War I, and Richard Byrne demonstrated historic methods of getting mail.
