Unique Service Honors Local Farmer

ARGYLE (WIFR) -- A local farmer who dedicated his life to preserving history gets one of his last wishes granted during his funeral on Sunday.

Warren Paulson, 90, died of congestive heart failure. He's the founder of the Agriculture Museum of Argyle. His family says a hearse from the 1800's sat inside the museum for years, and a sign nearby told visitors: “Paulson's last ride”. That's what it was Sunday. He was taken to the cemetery in the hearse drawn by a team of horses. His family says the facility will stay open in his memory.
