2020 Ephraim Historical Foundation Season Update

June 29, 2020 – The Ephraim Historical Foundation’s 2020 summer season begins on July 8.  In response to COVID-19, the EHF will be making a number of changes to ensure the safety of visitors, staff, and volunteers.

The EHF museums will be open by appointment only beginning July 8, with guided, small group tours.  Tours will be available Wednesday-Friday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. Visitors have the option of riding the EHF’s new electric tram (limit four individuals) or walking (limit eight individuals) between museums.  Masks will be required in the EHF museums and on the tram.  The cost is $5 per person.  Online reservations can be made at ephraim.org/reservations.    

A visitor favorite, old-fashioned candy from the Anderson Store, will be available for curbside delivery this year beginning July 6.  Orange slices, salt water taffy, and a variety of other candies can be purchased online at ephraim.org/candy (minimum $6 order) and picked up at a scheduled time between 11 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, at the EHF Offices (3060 Anderson Lane).  

Several of the EHF’s program series will continue online this year, including Child’s Play and History SpeaksChild’s Play, a collaborative program with the Door County Library – Ephraim Branch, will feature an online story and a take home craft activity.  While this program is free and can be viewed online, participants must preregister to pick up the complimentary craft and book each week. Reservations can be made online at ephraim.org or by calling (920) 854-9688. 

History Speaks, the EHF’s annual lecture series, will feature online videos on a variety of historical topics. Click here for more information.


June 5, 2020 – Thank you for your interest in the Ephraim Historical Foundation. Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff, the EHF museums will be open by appointment only starting in early July. This will allow for safe, small group tours of the buildings. Appointment information will be available soon—please check back or visit the EHF Museums hours page for more information. You can also see video tours of the EHF Museums here. The EHF office is open by appointment at this time. Email info@ephraim.org or call (920) 854-9688 for more information.

Our summer programs, History Speaks and Child’s Play, will continue in some form, though they will likely not be in-person events. Fortunately, our newly refreshed website and our Facebook page allow for endless possibilities to share video and other digital content. We will sadly not be gathering for Sunday SingAlongs this year, but we hope to share videos of past programs for SingAlongs at home.

Please contact the EHF office at info@ephraim.org or call (920) 854-9688 with questions.
