Door County's past opens again at Crossroads at Big Creek

The Heritage Village at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay officially opened for the season Tuesday giving visitors and locals alike the opportunity to get a glimpse at what communities looked like for early settlers to Door County.  Bailey Koepsel, executive director of the Door County Historical Society, shares the type of homesteads and buildings that make up the Heritage Village besides a school, church and blacksmith barn. 



Koepsel says there are no plans to expand the village this summer, but the Vignes School will be fully restored and become handicap accessible.  Heritage Village at Big Creek is open 10 am until 3 pm.  Tuesdays through Saturdays.
