On Monday, you may have seen institutions from around the county collect at the Door County Maritime Museum to kick off the first-ever Door County History Days. At the kickoff event, representatives from the different historical organizations met, and Heritage Alliance of Door County Chair Cody Schreck, Destination Door County CEO Julie Gilbert, and Wisconsin Historical Society Director Christian Overland spoke to the public. The Meet and Greet also included the debut of the Door County Heritage Map for the week. We talked to Schreck about the importance of preserving the area’s history.
This celebration of history will serve as a time for people to get to know the places in Door County that showcase history. Each day is full of special programs throughout the peninsula. You can find the list of events here.
