All ages can experience living history at this free library event held at Pioneer Village.  Don’t miss the opportunity to explore history while visiting restored buildings and structures from pioneer living, dating from the 1840s to early 1900s.  As you walk the grounds and explore buildings, a fur trader, school teacher, rope maker and antique tool demonstrator will show the ways of early rural life.  Many hands on family friendly activities will also be available.   Refreshments will be available for purchase from the Ozaukee County Historical Society.  More information is available at the library or by visiting monarchlibraries.org.
