Door County Museums and Culture

February 5th, 2015

 

Door County is rich in history and culture.

The county is named after the strait between the Door Peninsula and Washington Island. The dangerous passage, which is now scattered with shipwrecks, was known to early French explorers and local Native Americans. Because of the natural hazards of the strait, where the waters of Green Bay meet the open body of Lake Michigan, they gave it the French appellation Porte des Morts Passage, which in English means the “Way to the Door of the Dead,” or simply, “Death’s Door.”

Here is a list of ideas of Museums and Historical Places to Visit. Each listing includes a brief snippet of information from their website and is linked for you to find out more!

Washington Island Art & Nature Center

“Since 1965, the Washington Island Art and Nature Center has flourished as a not-for-profit organization for Islanders and visitors, promoting the creative arts, providing a sales outlet for Island artists and craftsmen, and directing nature study programs with special emphasis on youth education.”

The Miller Art Museum

“Founded in 1975 through the generosity of Gerhard and Ruth Miller, the Museum is a non-profit cultural arts institution, open all year, to provide a variety of arts opportunities to thousands of children and adults from near and far. The beautiful galleries feature changing exhibits with a rich diversity of expression fostering the creative life of the community.”

The Historic Noble House

“Alexander Noble (1829 – 1905) was one of Fish Creek’s founding fathers who moved from his native Scotland to Chambers Island in 1856. The Noble house was the first to be made of lathe and plaster. Completed in 1875, his dwelling is the oldest remaining residence in the village.”

Heritage Village at Big Creek

“In 1993, the Door County Historical Society leased a corner of the Crossroads at Big Creek to create The Heritage Village at Big Creek and moved the first building, a Fish House, to the site. Since then, work has progressed. Now six buildings are completed and the seventh is being restored.”

Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum

“Guiding guests through the lighthouse and its grounds, knowledgeable docents share the personal stories of the keepers who manned the light from 1868 – 1926. Furnished with some of the keepers’ original furnishings, as well as, authentic period antiques, the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum is a story of not only the men who toiled through the night, but also their wives and children.”

Door County Maritime Museum

“Located along Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin’s busy waterfront, the Door County Maritime Museum showcases the area’s rich maritime roots. Hard-working fishermen, brave ship captains, skilled craftsmen, bold inventors and lonely lighthouse keepers”

Door County Historical Museum

“The building was completed in 1939 as a museum. It was during the Great Depression and was built as a WPA project during the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt.”

Corner of the Past/Old Anderson House Museum

“The original 1875 Anderson family farmhouse was completely renovated beginning in 1994 and features late 1800’s furnishings, historical photographs, and artifacts depicting Sister Bay’s history.”

BjÃ-rklunden Boynton Chapel

“Björklunden* vid Sjön, Swedish for “Birch Grove by the Lake” is a 425-acre estate on the Lake Michigan shore just south of Baileys Harbor in picturesque Door County. A place of great beauty and serenity, the property includes meadows, woods, and more than a mile of unspoiled waterfront.”

Cana Island Lighthouse

“Travel back in time and explore one of Door County Wisconsin’s most popular lighthouses that’s been standing watch on the shore of Lake Michigan for more than 140 years. Investigate the entire 8.7-acre island that includes the 89-foot-tall light tower, the original home of the lighthouse keeper and his family, and the oil house where fuel for the light was stored.”

The Clearing Folk School

“The Clearing is a folk school founded in 1935 by landscape architect Jens Jensen. This “school of the soil” is nestled within 128 acres of Door County forests and meadows and overlooks the dramatic Green Bay shoreline. It was built as a place where ordinary people could, as the name implies, “clear one’s mind” by reconnecting with nature and with one another.”

Crossroads at Big Creek

“Crossroads at Big Creek is a preserve for experiential lifelong learning focused on science, history and the environment. A stimulating environment with state-of-the-art multimedia facilities where individuals can learn in an informal and interactive setting. Indoor and outdoor laboratories, a greenhouse and a specialized library that encourage study and research in botany and the environmental sciences. A historical center, developed and maintained by the Door County Historical Society, which presents Door County’s ethnic heritage, cultural development and land use decisions.”

Ridges Sanctuary

“Over 5 miles of winding trails for hiking and snowshoeing through the most biologically diverse ecosystem in Wisconsin. Extraordinary forests and wetlands are home to over 475 plant species, including 25 of the 40 species of orchids native to the state, as well as the largest population of the federally endangered Hine’s Emerald Dragonfly and 60 species of migrating and nesting birds. The historic Baileys Harbor Range Lights, a rare type of lighthouse, are also found on our campus.”
