Door County Historical Society Endowment Fund
Founded in 1926, the Door County Historical Society (DCHS) keeps history alive for future generations, The Society operates two impressive sites: Eagle Bluff Lighthouse in Peninsula State Park and the Heritage Village at Bog Creek in Sturgeon Bay, and hosts several historical programs throughout the year.
Since 1960, the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse consisted of the keeper’s house and tower, oil house, privy, summer kitchen, and barn. The Society will begin another restoration effort to replace the barn and summer kitchen.
Heritage Village at Big Creek demonstrates the story of Door County Settlers, their lives, and their sense of community. The Village includes buildings from the era post-Civil War to pre-World War including a school, church, granary, blacksmith shop, general store, fish house, privy, period homes, a Norweigian Homestead, and a took museum.
