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.
The Le Mars Main Street Exhibit and Business Memories Open House will wrap up with a hot dog
feed on the second floor. The Open House starts at 2pm this Sunday, February 24th and the
museum will be open all afternoon from 1-5pm.
