The Eden Prairie Historical Society's Farmhouse Market and Vintage Sale had a great turnout last weekend!
The dry and sometimes sunny weather allowed for steady traffic through the Cummins-Phipps-Grill House during their spring event. Many folks came out to find some antique treasures, gifts, farm fresh goods and flowers, and some just came to see the house.

Descendants of Pappy and Mildred Grill, the last homesteaders of the Cummins-Phipps-Grill House, came to visit the house and enjoy the Farmhouse Market & Vintage Sale. They were very excited to be there! They enjoyed seeing the farmhouse and looking at old photos. Dick Grill, who worked at his aunt & uncle's farm when he was young, identified a lot of things in the old photo album that was on hand, and had some very good stories too!

The Eden Prairie Historical Society would like to say THANK YOU to our vendors, Tracy Hope, Carrie Marshall, Kelley Regan, Vicki Price, Ann Rorem, Penny - the ice cream truck lady, and PROP, for all their time and hard work in helping make this sale a successful & fun event!
