Celebrate the heritage of the Minnesota settlement of West Newton, which existed halfway between New Ulm and Fort Ridgely from 1856 to 1901, at this annual event. Visitors can view historical photographs and learn about the history of Alexander Harkin and his family, the founders of the 1870s Harkin Store. 

Descendants of West Newton's earliest residents are invited to share their stories and any old photographs. Historic site staff will copy information and photos.
