The Flag Pole in the Intersection




The Clyde Norway store was on the left.  Hal Spires climbed the flag pole.

Do you recognize the intersection of State Route 249 and the Farmer-Mark Road/ Route 2 which is the center of the village of Farmer?  Once upon a time, a flag pole was smack dab in the middle of the crossing. Why?  No one seems to know.

Not much information could be found on this situation, even from a couple of ladies who grew up in or lived near Farmer for over ninety years. They only knew that the pole was gone in the late 1920s or 1930.
