Historic Sites

The Funk family business of producing pure maple sirup began in Funks Grove in 1824, and business has been going strong ever since. Guided tours of the grounds are offered during the sirup-making season that showcase the Funk family process.

Settled along the originaly Route 66, Funks Grove Pure Maple sirup is a must-stop when traveling along the Mother Road. In recent years, Funks Grove Maple Sirup has expanded its line of merchandise to include maple cream, cookbooks, and Route 66 memorabilia.
