Larchwood Is 150 Years Old This Year And There’s A Party Going On

[1]Larchwood, Iowa — 1872 was a banner year in northwest Iowa. Not only were Sibley, Osceola County, and Sheldon all started that year, but so was the town of Larchwood up in the extreme northwest corner of the state.

The fine folks of Larchwood are combining their normal Larchwood Family Days Celebration this year with a sesquicentennial or 150th-anniversary celebration.

Sandi DeSmet is the Larchwood City Clerk. She gives us an idea of what’s happening this weekend, starting with Friday night’s activities.
