Elevator & Depot

This photo, from the early 1900s, shows the Chicago Great Western Railroad line through Bolan. The view is looking southwest toward Manly.

The Bolan community is hosting its 15th annual fall event, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23. Festivities will be in the Bolan Schoolhouse and on Tulip Lane.

There will be a pancake breakfast fundraiser by the Bolan Schoolhouse & Cultural Center, a bazaar and luncheon hosted by the United Methodist Church Women, homemade pie and ice cream, and music by Sam Crosser.

The 17th annual bike ride will depart at 9 a.m., with registration at 8:30.

At 10:30 a.m., there will be a sign and sidewalk dedication ceremony on Tulip Lane. A fundraiser to replace the 1950s sidewalk was launched last fall. Six sites will be “live” along the new sidewalk, with photos and memorabilia: Bolan Store, Railroad & Depot, Barton No. 2 School, Otranto Post Office House, Grandma White’s House, and Trinity United Methodist Church.
