Here's a nice little event for those of you who enjoy riding the Gandy Dancer!
Pie Social at the Frederic Soo Line Depot Aug. 20
FREDERIC—The Frederic Area Historical Society will be serving pie, ice cream and refreshments at the 1901 Frederic Soo Line Depot from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 20. The pie and ice cream social is an annual fundraiser to help with the operation of the Frederic Area Museum.
Held in conjunction with the Frederic Craft Fair, many varieties of home baked pies are offered. Live music will be playing, and there are adventures in history for everyone. Tour a Soo Line wide-vision caboose that is on display, check out a log cabin built in 1885, see Frederic’s last phone booth on display, or see what Frederic’s first library looked like.
The Frederic Area Museum is open weekends and holidays in downtown Frederic from Memorial Day weekend through leaf season in October, and has many items on display connected to the history of the area and the Soo Line railroad that developed Northwest Wisconsin at the start of the last century. Admission to the museum is free.
