“The History of Agriculture in Door County” Featured in Crossroads’ Village Series

At Crossroads at Big Creek on June 24, the Sunday at The Village Series features George Evenson and “The History of Agriculture in Door County.”

According to Evenson, “The history of agriculture in Door County is a history of change. Of course, we are all acquainted with the changing seasons. We know what to expect and we often look forward to these annual changes. But there are other changes too…subtle, moving more slowly. These changes often occur over years so slowly that we don’t notice unless we have lived in one area for a long time.”

Evenson will share changes he has witnessed in people, crops methods, and the social structure of the countryside, as well as some of the problems faced because of change.

Visitors can tour The Historical Village between 1:30 – 3:30 pm, and the program begins at 2 pm. Admission is free and refreshments will be available for purchase.

Free family programs are also offered at Crossroads Monday through Thursday from 1:30 – 3:30 pm. There are no age limits and pre-registration is not required. Two upcoming programs are “Life in a 1900 Farmhouse” on June 25 and “Insect Safari” on June 26.

Crossroads at Big Creek is a donor-supported preserve located at 2041 Michigan, just off Highway 42/57 east of Sturgeon Bay. For more information visit
