Keeping History Alive for Future Generations

The Ephraim Historical Foundation of Door County Wisconsin serves as the proud steward of the Ephraim Historical Foundation Museums: the Anderson Barn (1880), the Pioneer Schoolhouse (1880), the Anderson Store (c. 1858), the Goodletson Cabin (c. 1855), and the Historic Iverson House (1854).  These museums stand testament to the courage, dedication, and fortitude of generations past.  The Foundation and its members are dedicated to preserving this history and heritage for future generations.  In addition to the Ephraim Historical Foundation Museums, the  Foundation preserves the Svalhus (c. 1890).  In 2009, thanks to the generosity of its members, the Ephraim Historical Foundation offices and archives were moved into the ARC (Archival Research Center), an addition to the Anderson Barn Museum.

When asked why he would undertake
such time-consuming and difficult tasks
for the Foundation,
Warren Davis said, “Simply put, I love Ephraim,
and I want to do my best
to preserve its uniqueness
and build up its attractiveness.”
