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 are open by appointment only beginning July 8, with guided, small group tours. Tours will be available through October 16, 2020, 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.
Several of the EHF’s program series will continue online this year, including Child’s Play, Dearly Departed: Ephraim Moravian Cemetery Walk, and History Speaks. Child’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 on our online programs. We have posted many videos of our past History Speaks Lectures on our YouTube page and are having daily conversations about historic Ephraim on our Facebook page. We have also added an online publication called the History Hub, and a bi-weekly Coffee and Zoom meeting so we can all stay in touch, from wherever we are.
