An app that reveals some historic sidewalk stones around Sturgeon Bay is now offering a couple of more history lessons. The Door County Historical Museum last year teamed up with theclio.com website to create a smartphone app which lists 18 of Sturgeon Bay's sidewalk stones. Street names at corners in the early 1900s were printed in the newly poured concrete sidewalks. Some homeowners and businesses also paid to have their names put in concrete. The app shares the history of those property owners and Assistant Curator Ginny Haen says two more stones now have stories to tell.
Haen says some historical sidewalk stones have been demolished while being replaced by new concrete. She hopes property owners who don't want to keep the stones will let the museum know so they can preserve them.
