The Thompsonville Area Revitalization Project (TARP) is pleased to report the installation on 11/16/2023 of a historical interpretive sign on Thompson Avenue adjacent to the former Immerman Dry Goods building built circa 1902-3. The sign sits next to the entrance stoop of what was the John Smith saloon. The stoop was uncovered during a TARP cleanup this past summer of the English Ivy which had completely obscured the stoop and sidewalk next to the brick building. The new sign is the first of potentially 5 or 6 interpretive signs highlighting Thompsonville’s rich history which could be placed strategically around the village to encourage self guided walking tours of the village. TARP would like to thank the Joint Planning Commission and The Thompsonville Village Council for their support in helping this sign become a reality. 

In addition, TARP would like to thank Jake Milarch and Milarch Tree Company for the donation of grinding several tree stumps behind the sign.
