The American Freedom Train in Archbold, Ohio
June 13-15, 1975

The train's 13th display city.

The smallest town visited by the AFT -- but it drew crowds outnumbering the population of the town by several fold.

Ticket: Paul Burke collection, AFT Treasurer

 
 

 

 

Archbold resident and local radio station owner Max Smith was instrumental in convincing the American Freedom Train Foundation to send the train to tiny Archbold.

 

The train was initially scheduled to display only on the 14th & 15th, as seen on this small 6"x9" poster.

Demand for tickets pushed the opening up to Friday June 13th and the posters were soon overlayed with the new info and printed are thicker stock.

Tickets from the added day (Friday) have a different layout from those used at most train stops (and for the two other days at Archbold).
