Mohawk Store Mary Cole Days

Come out to the Mohawk Valley this Saturday August 9th and Sunday and enjoy the 100th birthday of the historic Mohawk General Store!

This is a once in a lifetime event to tour the entire store - including the legendary dance hall upstairs that has been closed for decades!! The stage and bar are still upstairs. They will have many historical photos of the Mohawk area to see as well as past store owners and community historians.

There will also be FREE hot dogs, chips and drinks from 11:AM-2:PM both days. You can also enter the raffle drawing for a Weber portable BBQ (sponsored by Pepsi/Bigfoot Beverage) and store T-Shirts and Hats. The store will also have a Guest Book to record your memories of the historic building.

The 100th Mohawk Store Birthday Celebration is part of this year's Mary Cole Days in Marcola. This is the annual community event to remember it's history. Marcola is named for Mary Cole, wife of an early settler and businessman.

Just a couple of miles up the road is the Mohawk Valley Fire Department, where tents, crafts and music can be found. Our Mobile Museum Tent will be at the Fire Department. We will have LCHS brochures and information at both locations. Be sure to stop by and say "Hello"!
