Visitors at the Iverson House

Visitors at the Iverson House

A wonderful day will occur on June 19, and we hope you will tell all your friends about it.  It is EPHRAIM CULTURE DAY!

This year, we’ve joined with Bethany Lutheran Church, Ephraim Moravian Church, Ephraim Firehouse Museum, and The Hardy Gallery for a day of history and heritage.  This is one day before Ephraim’s 51st annual Fyr Bal Festival.  Click here to learn more.

If you are a member of the Ephraim Historical Foundation, you are always welcome to tour our museums for free, just by showing your membership card. It is truly remarkable that a village as small as Ephraim can support five antique buildings.

They are listed below in the order in which EHF was able to acquire them.

There are many non-members, both in and out of Door County. We think they would all enjoy a look into the past.

Please spread the word that Ephraim’s cultural organizations will be open to the public on Friday, June 19, the day before FYR BAL, and the admission is FREE.

At the EHF Museums, the hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and there will be a docent in each building to give its history and answer questions.
