Thurman and the Town of Warrensburg are just a river crossing apart. Snowmobiling remains an important winter activity for residents and wilderness snow lovers. River floating and winter skiing are actually walkable from the train station. Thurman provides visitors with a flash from the past with Maple Sugar and Fall Farm tours. Residents are proud of their culture, their music, homespun tales, history tours and hard work. Trapping, logging and farming continue to be an important way of life while local museums, amusement parks and cultural institutions are nearby.
