The Great Fire of 1871 in Door County will be commemorated in October by the Belgian Heritage Center and with help from the Door County Community Foundation. The Belgian Heritage Center is receiving a grant from the community foundation and will put it towards producing a video about the Great Fire and its aftermath that affected the local Belgian population. The video will be released by the 150th anniversary of the fire that occurred on October 8th of 1871. The video will be shown to the public at the BHC campus on October 9th and 10th. The devastating fire often gets overlooked in history, as October 8th-October 10th of 1871 is when the Great Chicago Fire took place.
