1930's Growing Tobacco Lindley Style

Durland Weale of Addison formerly of Lindley will present a program on Growing Tobacco in Lindley in the 1930's on Saturday, October 14th from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Lindley Town Hall on U.S. Rt. 15.

Mr. Weale had first hand experience in the raising of tobacco as a youth during this period on his parent's farm in Lindley. The talk will describe the various steps associated with growing a tobacco crop. Examples of locally grown tobacco and the equipment used in growing tobacco will be on display. This promises to be an educational and informative program on the history of an extensive farm crop that no longer exists in this area.
