This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Ephraim Historical Foundation (EHF). First organized to preserve Ephraim’s Pioneer Schoolhouse, EHF now includes five additional historical buildings, extensive archives and collections, and an active membership.
The anniversary season will begin June 14 with free walking tours on Ephraim Heritage Day – at 10:30 am from the Anderson Barn Museum, 3060 Anderson Lane, and at 1:30 pm from the Pioneer Schoolhouse Museum at 9988 Moravia St. – plus open houses at the five EHF museums and Svalhus Research Library.
The newest Anderson Barn Museum exhibit – Home Away From Home: Ephraim’s Historic Hotels – will run June 14 through Oct. 12. The Iverson House Museum – believed to be the county’s oldest frame building – will be open during regular museum hours. The EHF museums will also offer free admission this season (though donations are appreciated), and a new program encourages visitors to collect a stamp at the five museums to receive a special gift.
