Historical Society Creates New Spring Family Program

The Manitowoc County Historical Society, 924 Pinecrest Road in Manitowoc, has launched a new self-guided program for families, and K-12 classes called "The Weary Traveler’s Self-guided Journey."

During this self-guided adventure activity, guests will make their way through a series of hands-on challenges in Pinecrest Village including repairing a wagon wheel, math enrichment activities, and pioneer play. Due to safety measures for guests and volunteers during the COVID-19 pandemic, all guests will be required to wear masks, and sanitization stations will be available throughout the museum grounds. This self-guided education program will allow for small groups to safely perform hands-on tasks with a guided booklet and the guidance of a teacher, parent, or chaperone. 

"The Weary Traveler's Self Guided Journey" will take place on May 26, June 3, and June 11 from 10am-2pm. Advanced registration is required. The cost is $6 per student, age 4 to 17. Free for children under age 4. One adult educator per family is admitted free. Additional adults may join in the program at a cost of $6 each. 

Registration is limited to a designated amount of students and adults each day. Reservations are required to take part in this self-guided journey.

About the Manitowoc County Historical Society
Nestled in the scenic rolling Ice Age Kettle Moraine countryside of Eastern Wisconsin, the Manitowoc County Historical Society is a museum of living history. This 60-acre interpretive museum of local history features a Welcome Center with local history exhibits and research services and the outdoor Pinecrest Historical Village - a collection of over 25 historic buildings with period furnishings from Manitowoc County's early settlers. 
Pinecrest Historical Village began in 1970 with a land donation from the Hugo and Eleanor Vetting family.  The Village has grown to represent a reproduction of a small Wisconsin community during the early 1900s. The buildings form the commercial, social, and political core of a town and they represent several architectural styles of Wisconsin's history. The furnishings, items, and tools in the various buildings used by the Pinecrest Village interpreters are either original pieces or carefully researched reproductions.
