Thorp Historical Society Adds New Exhibit (2013)

When visitors come to the Thorp Area Historical Society’s museum this year, they will have the opportunity to see a whole new part of the city’s history laid out. Thanks to Forward Financial Bank, under the leadership of Stephanie Chapman, members of the Thorp Area Historical Society were invited to walk through the empty Community Bank building and gather artifacts for the museum.

‘We were thrilled to be able to choose historic items that had been used over 50 years ago in the banking industry,’ said a representative of the Thorp Area Historical Society.

Used back in the early years of the Farmers Exchange Bank, over 30 historical items are now a part of an exhibit in the local museum where the community can come and see first-hand the equipment used by former Thorp banks.

The Thorp Area Historical Society extends its gratitude to Forward Financial and Ms. Chapman for their generosity of giving the museum membership the opportunity to bring the past back to life with the new exhibit.
