Sparta Devastated by Loss of Winter Wheat and new update

The loss of Winter Wheat by fire this winter has been a real blow to Sparta. This very popular attraction was totally destroyed. Mike Roberts, the owner is taking a year off to recuperate and may do something on a smaller scale in the future. Mike has done so much for Sparta. He started the first tourist attractions in Sparta in the 1970’s and continued to the present day. He restored two buildings in the village and then opened Winter Wheat. We are thankful for everything Mike has done for Sparta and wish him all the best.
The property has been sold and will see a new use soon.

We each make a donation of $5.00 to help the hall. We often have joint projects like making quilts for nursing homes or first responders. Due to Covid 19 the group is not meeting at present. It will resume shortly.
