September 2015 News

A big thank you to all who helped make the 2015 Homecoming Festival a great event.  The weather was perfect and there was remembrance, education and just plain fun for everyone who attended.  The ceremony honoring our Veterans was especially heart warming.  Here are a few pictures, with more to be posted to the photo gallery soon.

The Caledonia Historical Society meets the 3rd Thursday of the month.  The next meeting is September 17th at the Old Town Hall at Linwood Park, Hwy 38 and 5 Mile Rd, at 6:30 pm.  Everyone is welcome.

The next Open House is Sunday, September 27th, from 1 pm to 4 pm.  All of the buildings in Linwood Park will be open to the public with docents available.   This could be your last chance to visit with CHS members at the park this season since we close the park for the winter months.  We appreciate donations, but there is no charge for the Open House.

The 1902 Depot is finally completely painted on the outside–check it out!   The Caboose has been repainted also.   The barn should have a foundation in a couple of weeks and then the barn will once again become a two story structure.

Remember that we have items for sale such as mugs, note cards, depot prints, the “Milwaukee Then and Now” books, and bricks for the walkway at the Old Town Hall.  CHS is a non-profit operated by volunteers only and all proceeds help to realize our goals
