The Kewaunee County Historical Society is planning some new exhibits now that they have their permanent home. Thanks to the generosity of a benefactor, the KCHS was able to buy the building they have been in for the past five years in Kewaunee. The funds were donated to the KCHS with the stipulation that it be used to purchase a building. The KCHS is bringing the Fresnel lens located in the Kewaunee Pier Lighthouse to the building later this month. In February, they will have three scheduled presentations. One is about Wisconsin during the Cold War, another about two ships that went down near Kewaunee Harbor, and the third about steam engines. Arletta Bertrand is the treasurer for the KCHS and she says her favorite things coming are items obtained from the recent Karsten Hotel auction that were part of the haunted "Ghost Agatha" room.
The KCHS is open Thursdays and Fridays from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM and Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
