The Door County Historical Society hosts its first Heritage Village at Big Creek yesteryear program of the season on June 2 at 1 pm. The program features the documentary The Barn Raisers screened at Collins Learning Center, 2041 Michigan Street, Sturgeon Bay.
The documentary tells the story of barns in the Midwest by examining them through the lens of architecture. What do barn settings, styles, methods and materials tell us about the people who built them, the life they lived, and the role these vanishing country cathedrals played in the settling and building of a growing nation? A number of Wisconsin barns are featured in the film. The Barn Raisers producer Tammy Rundle and her husband Director Kelly Rundle are Emmy-nominated historical documentary filmmakers.
In 2018, the Society celebrates the year of the barn. The day-long history tour features Northern Door historic barns on July 21.
The member fee is $5 and the guest fee is $10. For reservations, mail your check to the Door County Historical Society Office, PO Box 71, Sturgeon Bay 54235.
