4th Annual WWII Living History Event

On Saturday, May 19, the Ozaukee County Historical Society and the 1st Allied Airborne Living History Group will transform Ozaukee County Pioneer Village into a European Village in the midst of World War II. The theme for this year’s event is “The Forgotten Front of Europe, the Mediterranean”. Italian soldier reenactors will join the close to two hundred living historians encamped in the village.

Attendees can expect to see vehicles, weaponry, uniforms and artifacts from the time. A French café, a USO canteen, morning and afternoon battles and many demonstrations throughout the day are all part of the event. On this one hundred year anniversary of WWI, there will be a tribute wall honoring those men from Ozaukee County who perished in that conflict. A special feature is the USO style dance in the Village Hall at 7:00PM on Saturday. With music from the forties, the fifteen piece orchestra Swing Noveau, will entertain reenactors in uniform as well as the general public.

Food and beverage are available and parking is free. The event runs from 10AM to 10PM on Saturday. Admission on Saturday is $10 for adults, $8 for students (13-17) and Seniors and $5 for all veterans. World War II veterans and small children (12 and under) are free. Pioneer Village is located at 4880 Highway I in the Town of Saukville.

May 18th Group and School tours are scheduled for Friday. New this year, the public is invited to preview the WWII encampment from 9:00AM to 2:00 PM. There will be structured stations where people can learn about the war, homeftont and a soldier’s life. The cost is $5 per person. Beverages and snacks are available in the gift shop (Full food service is available on Saturday only)."

May 7th Quarterly Meeting - Stepping Back in Time
Village HallIt was approximately 13,000 years ago when the first people occupied the area now known as Southeastern Wisconsin. Fortunately, the material culture they left behind allowed archaeologists to study the hunting strategies, conflicts, beliefs and lifestyles of these early people. As a result, Ozaukee County’s archaeological record is rich in the material culture of Paleo, Archaic, Woodland and Historic people.

Hey Baby- See How Far We Have Come!
Village HallAs most of you know, work began on the new Pioneer Village Hall in March 2014. The electrical service was upgraded, new water lines were trenched in, the old red pole barn was demolished so that the concrete footprint could be expanded to 80’ x 100’. The building was roughed in and the exterior stonework of the building was finished that fall. The modern restroom facilities and the amenities of the new food service area were completed in early 2015.  The exterior of the siding and soffits of the building were completed by February of 2017. In spring of 2017, the building was fully insulated and in early October natural lines were brought from Hwy I to the new building. The energy-efficient heating units were also installed in October. Because the building is now heated, work on the interior design elements can be done over the late fall and winter months. The majority of the work is being completed by the heart-felt and skillful efforts of many volunteers. While OCHS continues to raise funds through grants, private donations and special events such as the annual rummage sale, Autumn at the Village and Women in History Luncheon, there is still so much more needed to complete the interior design, lighting and audio-visual equipment.
Please consider a year-end tax deductible contribution to support the Pioneer Village Hall completion. All donations can be sent to OCHS at P.O. Box 456, Grafton, WI 53024.
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!
