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.

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
