Tools of the Past

Join the Jacksonport Historical Society on June 24 at 7 pm at the Jacksonport Town Hall on County Highway V for a wonderful presentation by the Madden brothers. The Madden family has a strong interest in farming, rural history, and collecting tools and equipment from the past. As their interest and collections have grown, they want to share the intriguing and unique ingenuity that the hand tools of farmers, wood workers, homemakers, and loggers represent. Pat and Mike Madden will share some of the tools they have collected. Tools from Door County pioneer farmers, homemakers, carpenters, and loggers will be discussed and displayed. The public is encouraged to bring along stories and tools to share. Maybe you can “stump” the tool enthusiasts, the Madden brothers.

Admission is free and open to the public but a donation is welcomed. Refreshments will be served following the presentation.
