DCHM Continues the Search for Prohibition Items

On July 28, the Door County Historical Museum in cooperation with the Door County Archives, will display items from the Roaring Twenties Era of Prohibition. The current exhibit items are limited and visitors are invited to bring in items, either to donate or loan for the day, relating to that era. Related photos and stories are also requested; photos can be scanned and returned.

Objects of interest might be “soft drink parlors,” stills or parts used in the manufacture of moonshine, agents hired by the federal government to uphold the new laws, temperance groups such as the Good Templars and WCTU (Women’s Christian Temperance Union), ‘20s-era clothing and anything else relating to the period between 1920 and 1933.

Call the museum at 920.743.5809 to make arrangements to bring in items before July 28, if possible. The museum is located at 18 N. 4th Ave in Sturgeon Bay and is open daily from 10 am – 4:30 pm. Admission is free but donations are welcome to benefit exhibits and programming.
