    In September of 2011 the Historical Society staged its first Dahlia Festival. This fundraiser has evolved into a very popular annual event, where amateur and professional dahlia enthusiasts compete on an equal basis to celebrate the beauty and enjoyment of these gorgeous flowers that grow so well in our beautiful mountains.
