Chelsea history is the focus of 2 upcoming community events
CHELSEA, MI -- Joe Ziolkowski and his wife Abby Hurst have transformed a Chelsea building that once was falling apart into a fresh food market now known as Agricole Farm Stop. There were times, Ziolkowski said, that he “really considered just walking away” from the project at 118 N. Main St., but he didn’t. Now, years later, he’s going to share the story of how he did it during an upcoming Chelsea Historical Society event. Ziolkowski will present his experience -- “Insiders Look at the Old Mack/New Agricole Building” -- at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12, at the Chelsea Depot, 125 Jackson St., during the first of two upcoming events showcasing Chelsea history. The building “is significant in Chelsea history,” Jan Bernath, Chelsea Area Historical Society president, said, and the event will celebrate the building and store, which opened in 2019.mlive.com
