The Old Parsonage Newsletter- May 2018

The Old Parsonage at 217 First Street in Rutland ND will have some changes in its hours
this year. The second Wednesday in the month and the following Saturday will be the
regularly scheduled “Open” days. This May, the regularly scheduled days will be
Wednesday & Saturday, May 9 & 12. Wednesday from 1 to 4, and Saturday from 10 to 4. You can also call for an impromptu visit on any other day, right up to Christmas. Just give Kathy a call at 701-680- 9831 or at 701-724- 3467. We’ve got lots of new old
inventory on hand this year. It’s always exciting to get things going again. I hope we
have a nice Spring, Summer and Fall, and that we get to see you often in 2018.

I discovered that the little house that is south across the street from The Old Parsonage,
was built in 1887 by Mr. Robert Bagley, the first Great Northern Railway agent in
Rutland, who made his home there, so I bought it last Fall. I’ve had lots of fun repairing,
restoring and renovating this house, believed to be the oldest in Rutland. I hope you will
come and check the place over! We will have coffee and goodies on the kitchen table!
