The year 2018 will mark two 50th anniversaries in the Panora area. Not only will the Lake Panorama Association be celebrating 50 years, so will the Guthrie County Historical Village.
The Village core is located on a four-acre site on the southwest side of Panora. It got its start when the Panora Depot was abandoned by the Milwaukee Railroad and donated to the Panora Lions Club. Through a community effort, the depot was moved to its current location in 1968.
