Instead of dodging about all over the place for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week, I thought I’d stay in one place and feature the buildings of Heritage Hill State Historical Park in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
This 54-acre site, opened in 1977, showcases 24 historical and reproduction buildings typical of the early history of Northeastern Wisconsin between 1672 and 1940. The Cheese Factory, pictured above, was built in 1894 and was originally located in Kewaunee County.
The Moravian Church, built in 1851, is a popular place for weddings. It was originally located in downtown Green Bay but was relocated to Heritage Hill in 1980.
Baird Law Office, built by Samuel Beall in 1835, was bought by Henry Baird in 1841 and was relocated at Heritage Hill in 1975.
The YMCA Library, built in 1873, was originally located on Chestnut Street and moved to Heritage Hill in 1977.
The Smithy, built in 1897 by Henry DeWitt, stood on the corner of Danz and University and was moved to Heritage Hill in 1976. DeWitt specialized in decorative blacksmithing and later the building was used as an auto repair shop.
The barn, pictured above, was owned by the Lampereur family and is part of the Belgian Farm at Heritage Hill.
The Franklin Hose Company No. 3 was built in 1887 for the purpose of a volunteer fire department. It was disbanded in 1891 and moved to Heritage Hill in 1975.
