Historical Society Plans Spring Clean Up for April

The Manitowoc County Historical Society, 924 Pinecrest Road in Manitowoc, is preparing for the opening of its spring and summer season in May with its annual spring clean up on Tuesday, April 25 and Wednesday April 26 from 9 AM to 2 PM. Cleaning supplies are available but if you are able, please bring your own as well. Snacks will be provided throughout the day.

While the focus is on spring clean-up, the Historical Society reminds volunteers to help clean our historic structures throughout our summer season! Join as a volunteer each week or for a few hours each month and help make the buildings shine.

Register to attend spring clean-up by calling the museum at (920) 684-4445 or emailing GuestServices@ManitowocCountyHistory.org. Volunteers should check in at the McAllister House Welcome Center for cleaning assignments.

About the Manitowoc County Historical Society
Nestled in the scenic rolling Ice Age Kettle Moraine countryside of Eastern Wisconsin, the Manitowoc County Historical Society is a museum of living history. This 60-acre interpretive museum of local history features a Welcome Center with local history exhibits and research services and the outdoor Pinecrest Historical Village - a collection of over 25 historic buildings with period furnishings from Manitowoc County's early settlers. 
Pinecrest Historical Village began in 1970 with a land donation from the Hugo and Eleanor Vetting family.  The Village has grown to represent a reproduction of a small Wisconsin community during the early 1900s. The buildings form the commercial, social, and political core of a town and they represent several architectural styles of Wisconsin's history. The furnishings, items, and tools in the various buildings used by the Pinecrest Village interpreters are either original pieces or carefully researched reproductions.
