Forestville to hit the road with the Smithsonian

You will find a little bit of Door County in a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibit in the coming years. The future exhibit, Spark! Places of Innovation will feature Forestville as a community in rural America that has contributed a lot. Cherries will take center stage for the community as the exhibit explores growing cherry trees into limestone, the economic impact of the crop, and the unique ways the fruit has been used. Door County Economic Development Corporation Director of Business Development Julie Schmelzer hopes that a little recognition will spur future innovation in the area.

You will have to wait a little longer to see Forestville become a part of the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program. The exhibition is scheduled to hit the road beginning in 2023 through 2029.
