THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Settler's Day Picnic Saturday
Issue Date: August 2, 2018
On Saturday, Aug. 4 the Crivitz Museum will host a Settlers' Day picnic from noon until 6 PM. The Museum is located one block west of McDonalds in Crivitz. There will be fun and games for all ages, food and refreshments available throughout the day. Live music will be provided by Dave Stodola and the Party Boys from 2 to 6 PM.
The Crivitz Area Museum is located on land which at one time was a University of Wisconsin Experimental Farm. In 1915 the first Settler's Day Picnic was held in Crivitz over 15,000 people attended the event.
There will be a display of the museum's collection of farm equipment and tools that would have been used by farmers of an earlier era. Monies raised at the event will be used to rebuild a 1909 era barn to the museum grounds. The barn will house these farm tools as well as equipment which is currently displayed outside and needs to be protected from the weather. When completed, the barn display will show what an early dairy barn looked like, recalling the community's long history of farming.
