Throwback Thursday: Barnes County Picnic

The Valley City Times-Record plans to run a historical photograph each week on Thursdays submitted by our readers.

Wes Anderson, curator of the Barnes County Historical Society Museum agreed to start off the series and give our readers an idea what we are hoping will be submitted with this photo from the museum archives.

Photos can be of events or places in Barnes County from 10, 20, 30 years ago, or even older. We will publish at least one submitted photograph every week in the Valley City Times-Record.

Please submit photographs by email to, or drop them by our office at 146 Third Street NE.
