EUPORA â€” Share a little local history this Christmas as the Eupora Main Street program launches a special fund-raiser at this yearâ€™s Webster County Christmas Market.
The Eupora Christmas Market is set from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Saturday in downtown Eupora.
This year, the Eupora Main Street will be selling limited edition pewter ornaments, featuring a picture of an iconic historic building with a few sentences sharing its historic significance to the community on the back of the ornament.
This yearâ€™s ornament will features the Eupora Depot building, circa. 1917.
Cynthia Wilson, executive director of the Webster County Development Council/ Eupora Main Street program said the ornaments will be sold at this yearâ€™s Christmas Market, and in years to come.
â€śThis is the first in a series of ornaments that ill be sold each year,â€ť Wilson said.
Wilson said in coming years, ornaments will depict the Old Eupora High School building (currently the county school district offices); the Eupora Post Office; the Triangle building; and the Old Elementary School building that burned in the â€™70-â€™71 school year.
The ornaments will be dated with the year they are offered. There will be only 250 ornaments available and they will sell for $16 (tax included).
