Jail museum ready to educate again

With more places beginning their process of fully opening, the Kewaunee County Jail Museum is being unlocked. The museum, staffed by volunteers, opens on Monday. after missing out on their golden anniversary. In 2020 they weren’t able to celebrate their 50th year operating, so now 2021 will take its place as a special year. This summer, they’ll celebrate 50 years in business to pair with celebrating the Kewaunee County Historical Society making it 100 years. The historical society is even selling commemorative coins, with each side representing one of the milestones. Historical Society member Richard Dorner discusses one part of the jail museum they will now highlight. 



The museum will also be open during the Door County Lighthouse Festival, which will also be celebrated in Kewaunee County.
