FARMINGTON — The Farmington Historical Society is offering a mug series with scenes of the past in Farmington. The proceeds will be used to benefit historical society restoration projects.

The mugs feature the work of local artist Shirley Lorette, a lifelong resident of Farmington who is known for her paintings of old Farmington buildings. The mug for 2016 is the F. L. Butler building once located on Front Street. The scene depicts a time period when the train brought in construction supplies that were sold by the wagon load or by the piece. Upcoming mug designs by Lorette will be of buildings such as the Octagon House sun porch, a narrow gauge railroad engine, Franklin County Court House, baptist church and North Church.

The F. L. Butler mug, $15,  may be purchased in downtown Farmington at Sugarwood Gallery and Calico Patch.
