Centennial History Book
This book was written to preserve the history of Farnam for the people of today and for future generations.
The material for the book was obtained from the people of Farnam, people who lived at Farnam years ago and their descendents, as well as from newspapers of Farnam. Many of the newspaper articles have been printed in this book as they appeared in the newspaper. The article will be dated, therefore, keep this in mind as you read the article. The old timers, Farnam’s pioneers, who wrote these articles that are printed word for word, told about the times as they lived them. Their feelings were displayed in their writing of the articles. The consensus of the committee was to leave it this way.
The book is divided into several chapters to acquaint the reader with Keystone, Farnam, its businesses through the years, its people of yesterday and today, and the churches, schools, and organizations that were and are a part of the Farnam community.
From the introduction of Keystone and Farnam to the closing poem about the pioneers of Farnam, it can be said that ......... From these beginnings, we grew.
