Welcome To The 129th Halstead Old Settlers

August 12 - August 14, 2016

Have you thought about what it was like 129 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 129 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 129 years.

Wear your 129th Old Settlers BUTTON with Pride!
