This Sparta & District Historical Society Has installed a patio to the north of the Church Museum in memory of Brenda Louws and Debbie Corner. Benches will be added soon. This will be an area for both locals and tourists to share a picnic lunch, an ice cream cone, pizza or just rest in the shade. New trees and bushes will be planted as well. We want especially Thank Allen Fish for spearheading the work on the platform. Call Sally Martyn if you wish to help with the benches. Larry Corner has offered to plant Tulip trees in the spring of 2019 to add shade.
