Visitors to the Kewaunee County History Center will notice quite a few upgrades when it reopens next month. The two-story museum on Ellis Street in Kewaunee has been undergoing renovation late last year into this month for painting, roof repair and making the building more accessible for those with physical challenges. That includes a new restroom on the first floor and a chairlift to the second-floor exhibit areas. The most noticeable improvement will be the installation of brighter and more energy-efficient LED lighting. Richard Dorner, director of the history center, says that will bring displays and documents into clearer focus.
Grant money helped the Kewaunee County History Center pay for the upgraded LED lighting. People can see the improvements first hand when the center reopens February 1st.
