Antique agricultural tractors will be on display at this year’s spring open house at the former Hughes School – a one-room school adjacent to Liberty Elementary School.
Sponsored by the Liberty Township Historical Society the open house runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, at the school, 6010 Princeton Road.
“It’s going to be something a little bit different, something visual. People driving by will also get to see it,’’ said Paul Stumpf, Liberty Township’s fire chief and a founding member of the historical society.
“We wanted to have a tribute to the agricultural heritage of Liberty Township.”
Members will be available to answer questions about the school and its history.
In conjunction with the open house, the Liberty Township Garden Club will host its annual plant sale in the school’s parking lot.
“Most of the members will dig perennial ‘starts’ from their own gardens,’’ said club member Naomi Ormes. “You just never know what jewels you’ll find.”
Ormes said there would be hostas, daylilies, iris, ground covers and even some bushes – including burning bush – at the sale.
Along with the starts – which will sell for as little as 25 cents each – the Liberty Township gardening group will sell a limited number flats of annuals, $13; and and hanging baskets for $14.
Orders will be taken for flats for those who want them after the supply runs out.
The garden club uses funds from the plant sale to further its causes. Members take care of flowers at the Hughes School grounds, work in Dudley Woods and donate to the Butler County Fair.
