Barn operated by Steven Nelson and his son, Clarence Nelson. Barn was located where Lawrence Andres home is now located. Barn was torn down in the early 19920s by George Edwards. He built the three residences, Lawrence andres, Herman Syring and Mrs. Nixon. This note written by R.S. Nelson in 1970.”
We appreciate everyone who made the Wamego Community Foundation Match Day a success. 72 separate gifts were received and we raised over $23,000! The funds are used toward the rehabilitation of the facade of the Farmers Union Coop building, also known as the annex.
