Historical Society Presents ''Spirited History'' Program on October 13, 2023


Press Release

The Manitowoc County Historical Society will hold a “Spirited History” program on Friday, October 13 at 5:30 pm at the museum, 924 Pinecrest Road in Manitowoc.
Often times when an event is held at the museum, the question of ghosts or spirits comes up. Many volunteers and guests have mentioned strange occurrences they have encountered while spending time at various historic structures on the Pinecrest grounds. Not knowing if the encounters were a true experience or the power of suggestion, the Manitowoc County Historical Society decided to bring in paranormal investigators, SOS Investigated, to help sift through the stories.
Three buildings were investigated: the Meeme House, Sorenson home and Kunze cabin. During the “Spirited History” program, attendees will learn how the equipment is used, how the evidence was collected, and what makes it paranormal in nature. The results of the investigation will be revealed during the program.
Advanced registration is encouraged for the program. Tickets are $45 and are available for purchase on the Historical Society's website at ManitowocCountyHistory.org. Members of the Manitowoc County Historical Society get a 15% discount on the program.
For more information about this, and other programs offered by the Manitowoc County Historical Society, connect with the museum at (920) 684-4445 or visit online at ManitowocCountyHistory.org.
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.
