Local history buffs can explore the Wheat Trail that once blazed a path to the county's first economic boom during an all-day tour on Saturday, May 16.


The tour begins at the end of the Wheat Trail in Verndale and will proceed north through Wing River Township, North Germany Township, Nimrod and follow a slightly northwest line to end in Shell City, a boom town that went bust.

Pioneers created the trail to transport wheat from recently discovered prairies.
