 Pioneer Village Hall - Look How far We've Come

It has been a very busy year for the Pioneer Village Hall project. The restrooms and food service area were completed just in time for the “Final Push to Victory” WWII event this May. It was the venue for all our OCHS annual events, weddings, graduation and anniversary parties. 

For OCHS, the Pioneer Village Hall project is so much more than a building. The Pioneer Village Hall will provide a great opportunity for future exhibits, expanded educational programs, more annual events and a wonderful place for people to gather for a common interest. 

While the fund-raising committee has been successful in raising money through grants, private donations and benefit events like the annual rummage sale and Autumn at the Village, there is still so much more needed to complete the interior, heating and cooling infrastructure and audio-visual equipment.

We are asking that you please consider a year-end tax deductible contribution to the Pioneer Village Hall. All donations can be sent to OCHS at P.O. Box 456, Grafton, WI 53024. Forms for the Bench and Boulder Programs can be found by clicking here. Maybe you have seen or sat on the beautiful commemorative benches and seen the boulders that have been donated through our donor’s generosity.

We are counting on you. Don’t delay. Join the list of Supporters. Send in your Contribution Now!

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!
