|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.
