Discover our Ozaukee County History

At Pioneer Village

June 14th Noon – 5:00

The Ozaukee County Historical Society invites the public to tour our premier living history museum on Sunday, June 14th; admission is FREE. The day includes tours of the over 20 beautifully restored buildings which depict rural life in the 1800s and 1900s.  It is a great time for children to experience history first hand, for older folks to reminisce about how times have changed and for all the busy people in between, to take a breath and see how wonderful a more simple life can be. During this open house, as you will walk through Pioneer Village, experience the sights and sounds of the blacksmith with his iron artistry, or see the ladies stitching beautiful patterns in a colorful quilt. Learn how to make butter in an old fashioned butter churn, learn how bread was baked in the brick ovens of the summer kitchen and learn about honey and other bee products. Children can take a lesson in knitting, weaving, spinning or basket making.

Pioneer Village will be open from noon until 5:00PM and there will be a variety of refreshments available, in the new Pioneer Village Hall. Also, take in a glimpse of the progress being made on our year-round facility.

Introducing the New Pioneer Village Hall

The increased number of visitors to the Village each year has resulted in the demand for some modern improvements, such as air conditioning, heating and restrooms that are ADA compliant.  Our plans include improved food service facilities to better serve our own events as well as our future goals. There is a need to have audio-visual teaching aides for meetings and programs that can accommodate 150-200 people in all kinds of weather.

The Ozaukee County Historical Society appreciates all the dedication and work that was accomplished by the volunteers at Ozaukee County Pioneer Village, Stony Hill School, and the Hazel Wirth Research Center in the past and present. Although most of the volunteers for OCHS are Ozaukee County residents, people from Washington, Sheboygan, Milwaukee and Waukesha counties also volunteer. OCHS looks forward to working with all volunteers as they help to preserve the history of Ozaukee County and make it available to present and future generations. Thank you for your service!
