The Egg Harbor Historical Society is continuing its history programs with a showing of a 2015 video interview with Egg Harbor’s Marie (Wulf) Mikels on March 18, 1 pm, at the Kress Pavilion.
Mikels was born in 1928. After attending first grade at southern Door County’s Stokes School, Mikels and her family moved to downtown Egg Harbor. Her parents purchased the Wilson Grocery Store, which then became Wulf’s Cloverfarm Store.
Mikels grew up in the store and its living quarters in the back and upstairs. She was occasionally caught sampling candy, but when she was older, she worked in the store. She married Robert Mikels in 1948, left the store and moved to a farm south of Egg Harbor. The interview paints a picture of growing up in Egg Harbor during the 1930s and ’40s.
