We are still fund raising in order to get that 1919 machine shed/barn on a foundation. Look for upcoming events for the warmer months. Plans are in the works to bring back the successful Dinner in the Depot and a live Radio Show. And mark your calendars for September 10th and 11th when the Caledonia Heritage Festival (previously listed as our Homecoming Festival) returns for another weekend of fun wrapped in historic atmosphere. Watch for updates.
CHS was just notified that the Runzheimer Foundation of Waterford, WI has generously approved a grant for $3000 to pay for the LVL beams needed for the machine shed/barn. CHS is grateful for the generosity of the Runzheimer Foundation and everyone in the community who has helped with this project.
We have a very few in new condition books of “Journey To A Village, Caledonia 1835-2008” by Nicholas P. Weber. If you are interested, contact our President, Leroy Schmidt, at firstname.lastname@example.org right away. The cost is $20.
The Caledonia Historical Society meets the third Thursday of every month. Starting with the meeting on November 19th, we will meet at the Caledonia/Mt. Pleasant Memorial Park at 9416 Northwestern Ave. Our next meeting is February 18th at 6:30 pm. Everyone is welcome.
We have several items for sale to help pay the expenses of maintaining our historic village. The items include mugs, note cards, the book, “Milwaukee Then and Now,” bricks for the walk way by the Town Hall, and posters of the 1902 Depot. Spring must be coming so think about renting our historic buildings and/or our historic village grounds for your event small or large. If you are interested, send us a note via the Contact Us page on this website.
