Door County History in Pictures

The substantial American cars parked and lined up at the ferry dock in Gills Rock indicate that this undated photograph was taken in the 1950s. Photo courtesy of the Door County Historical Museum, 18 N. 4th Ave., Sturgeon Bay. Open 10 am – 4:30 pm daily, May 1 through Oct. 31.

CORRECTION: In last week’s issue the hotel in the photo was incorrectly identified as Thorp House Inn. It is, in fact, the Hotel Thorp. The property won fifth place in a Door County Historical Museum contest in 1949 as one of the properties held the longest in one family.
