It would be difficult to imagine how people use to turn out to Calhoun events, like the Centennial Parade in Grantsville circa 1956, with people eight-to-ten deep up and down Main Street.

Several thousand showed to a drama performed on the high school football field, representing the history of the county.

It was a time when people were still connected to their roots and community.

The 150th anninversary of the county went by without a whimper.

Here's a flashback to that 1956 event, compliments of Morris Bower.
