On Saturday, July 27, 2019, Forestburg Farmers Elevator Co. celebrated its 100-year anniversary with an open house held at the Artesian Community Center. The open house consisted of a social hour, dinner, and video power point and speakers that covered the history of the elevator. There were also beanbag games and inflatables for added entertainment. General Manager Steve Gaston said that the purpose of the event was to get together and reminisce. He added that it was a way to thank the farmers and communities for their patronage.

The current Board of Directors for the Forestburg Farmers Elevator Co. consists of Troy Olson, Wenton Wormstadt, Richard Alt, Arthur Kneen and Jim Hoffman. There are currently four employees including Steve Gaston who has been there 38 years, Mollie Ebersdorfer who has been an employee for 26 years, Joe Grassel who has been there 36 years and the most recent addition, Dave Brown, who has been an employee at the elevator for three years.

The campaign features Riley Zoss, a Forestburg farmer and agricultural and engineering admissions representative at Mitchell Technical Institute.

Most people would know it as the Nurnberg home from years ago. The property had been abandoned by the most recent renters and left in bad shape.
