2019 Sesquicentennial

While 2019 may seem like an eternity away, a group of individuals are already thinking and talking about celebrations for the City of Vinton. As we begin to make plans to celebrate our 150th birthday, contact the Vinton Unlimited office at 472-3955 or melissa@vintonia.org if you are interested in lending your time and talents.

We are excited to announce that the Walldogs will be returning to Vinton in August 2019 to create some new murals as well as touch up a few existing murals. Check out details of our plans by viewing the Mural Presentation.

The 2019 Sesquicentennial Committee is partnering with the Benton County Historical Society to gather information on the last 150 years of Vinton’s history! We are looking for photos and stories on the following topics: Vinton businesses, baseball in Vinton, the Benton County Fair, Sweet Corn Days and passenger train service to Vinton. 

Information gathered may be used in a new Historical Society publication, used as reference material for the Walldogs in creation of a new mural or other celebration related activities. 

September 18, October 16 and November 13th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm (open house format) in the 2019 Headquarters (303 1st Ave – Governor Sherman Building).
