The Ozaukee County Historical Society is concerned for our patrons and volunteers, so we have decided to follow the local school directive and close the Cedarburg Hazel Wirth Archives and Research Center located at the Interurban Depot on Center Street for a period of several weeks. As many of the volunteers are in the high-risk category, we need to continue to evaluate the situation and hope to reopen as soon as it does not pose a risk to them or the general public. Thank you for your support in this decision and we hope to see you again soon.
