Rural Life

This week at Crossroads at Big Creek, the Door County Historical Society will offer several programs about early rural schools and farm life. These programs include a presentation with the “schoolmarm” Joan Wilkie, a talk called “Farming at the Turn of the 20th Century” by George Evenson, and Judy Jesse presenting on “Education in the Rural Schools.”
Crossroads at Big Creek is a donor supported learning preserve welcoming learners of all ages to programs in science, history and the environment. The Collins Learning Center and the Heritage Village at Big Creek, located at 2041 Michigan in Sturgeon Bay, are open 1:30 – 3:30 pm daily and during scheduled activities.
