Grant to boost proposed tourist stop near Kane

Staff Writer

The “Wilds Sonshine Factory” on Route 6 in Wetmore Township west of Kane soon will become a major tourist attraction.
That’s the outlook from Dave Conklin, owner of Kane Lawn and Garden and one of the local investors in the business that features sunflowers. The “Sonshine” name is a play on words.
State Sen. Joe Scarnati (R-Brockway) on Thursday announced that a state grant of $489,200 has been awarded to the “Wilds Sonshine Factory,” which has been under construction for more than a year.
