Door Historical Museum Displays Sidewalk Block Project

The sidewalk block project being undertaken by the Door County Historical Museum staff is ready to be displayed. Past press releases asking for help locating the remaining cornerstones with the pre-1943 street names stamped into them, or local resident’s names on them, have produced some results. Eighteen stones have been located and photographed, research has been done on the early homes located at the sites and a display has been created at the museum highlighting the findings.

Stop by the museum to see the display, and an accompanying map so that if you’d like to do a walking tour to see the stones and learn about the historic homes, you can experience them firsthand. A number of them are located on Louisiana Street, just a short walk from the museum.

An app is also being developed so that the tour can be followed using your smart phone. There is still room to add more information if any stones have been missed. 

The museum is open daily from 10 am – 4:30 pm at 18 N. 4th Avenue, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. Though admission is free, donations are appreciated. If you have further information or questions, please call the museum at 920-743-5809 or e-mail [email protected].
