Latest gift from the Friends of the Atkins-Johnson Farm

Posted April 4, 2024


The bridges on the walking trail of the Big Shoal Heritage Area were replaced in 2023 thanks to a generous donation by the Friends of the Atkins-Johnson Farm and Museum. The 2022 and 2023 annual gifts both contributed to this project, along with fund from the City of Gladstone.
