Memories of Le Mars Business Past, Sunday at Museum

(Le Mars) -- Over the years the business landscape in Le Mars has has changed. As with

anywhere, some businesses come and go, some stand the test of time, but all leave some kind

of foot print.  If you have been a part of a Le Mars business from years past, the Plymouth

County Historical Museum invites you to share your memories at a special open house this

Sunday at 2pm. 

Long time Le Mars resident and museum volunteer, Delores Burkhard, says that the recently

constructed Le Mars Main Street Exhibit will be featured.

Joan Kroepel, whose father ran Mount Drug, will speak about the drug store.  Glada

Koerselman, former longtime editor of the Sentinel will be there as well.  Artifacts and

stories from the history of other Le Mars businesses will also be shared.  

Burkhard, who has lived in Le Mars since 1954, told me one of her memories of downtown Le

Mars was closely connected with fresh made bread.
