 Welcome To The 127th Halstead Old Settlers!
August 8 - August 10, 2014


2014 Halstead Old Settlers Button Design2014 Halstead Old Settlers Button DesignSupport Old Settlers - Wear Your Button!

Have you thought about what it was like 127 years ago?
At the time Old Setters started, Halstead, and Harvey County, were not anything close to what we see today. One thing is common: for 127 years, the patrons of Halstead have desired to celebrate their roots, year after year. Old Settlers is proof that our community cares about heritage and the people who call Halstead home.

Our committee is very diligent in keeping our annual celebration alive and well. The Old Settlers Button is an Emblem of Support. We support our heritage and want Old Settlers to continue for another 127 years.

Wear your 127th Old Settlers BUTTON with Pride!
