What a crowd! This photograph of the 1916 Mount Pulaski Old Settlers Reunion shows the streets crowded with people (and horses). The current Mount Pulaski Fall Festival, which kicks off Thursday, has a century-plus legacy of community gathering and celebration. Our first story on the history of this special event is in today's Top Stories.

Photograph supplied by Phil Bertoni, courtesy of the Mount Pulaski Historical Society.
