Heritage Hill Celebrates the 200th Anniversary of Fort Howard

Be a guest at a wedding for an officer and a lady and taste a sample of their wedding cake. Enlist in the 1836 5th infantry of the U.S. Army and learn what the physical requirements were. Take part in a one room schoolhouse geography bee. Meet prominent members of the early Green Bay community and learn about their connections to the Fort.

Premium Admission rates apply: Adults $11, Seniors (62+) $10, Children (4-15) $8, Children (3 and under) FREE

Our Rich Ethnic History

November 3, 2015

As the United States is often called "a Nation of Immigrants," locally, a similar thing can be said of us, here in Northeastern Wisconsin.  

Farmers from the Brabant province of Belgium began immigrating to Northeastern Wisconsin around 1853; lured by Antwerp advertisements of farmland at $1.25 an acre, and the promise of a French speaking population. These groups built sturdy houses, cultivated the land, and adjusted to life in America. With the exception of the native cultures, all who came to this country were immigrants in some fashion, and can trace their roots back to these brave souls.

One of the great treasures waiting for you at Heritage Hill State Historical Park is their Ethnic Agricultural Area, which includes an 1894 Cheese Factory, a Belgian Farmhouse from just after the Peshtigo Fire, the Cotton House, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the Civil War, and a Roadside Chapel with ties to families whose names are yet prominent in our communities.

This Chapel was given to Heritage Hill by the LaLuzerne Family of Duvall, and was restored to what it was like in the early 1900s. Joseph Derenne, Mrs. LaLuzerne’s father, built the Chapel after he was miraculously cured of cancer. Chapels such as this were a common sight near many of the Belgian farms in northeastern Wisconsin.

The chapel served as a place for the family to say daily prayers, and even for travelers to stop and say prayers, such as the Rosary. This chapel is another indication of the deeply held religious beliefs of the Belgian people.

A fresh flag flies high above the old Fort Howard Guard House. The Fort Howard project also represents a new level of interaction, using iPads to facilitate guests digging deeper into the history surrounding the Fort. Kids Free Tuesdays were a big hit providing an economical way for families to connect a new generation to an appreciation of the past and the present. Educational programming remained a major focus with more than 14,000 students touching, smelling, tasting, hearing and seeing their history.

You might ask, "But does this make a difference?"

“It was very meaningful for my students to see living history. It brought what we’ve been reading about to life. Thank you!” (A 4th grade teacher). Recently, after a full day “blabbing” lessons in the Schoolhouse, petting furs in Fur Traders Cabin and washing clothes at the Belgian Farm, Sloane from Colorado exclaimed, “Wasn’t this the best day of all!"

...This is your history and your Heritage Hill. Please help us make a difference, by supporting this living legacy and treasure for our community with a contribution to Heritage Hill. Look for our mailing this fall to make your contribution, or Click Here to make Your difference Now. And please, come and enjoy Heritage Hill this fall and have your “best day of all!”

Fort Howard Guard House Grand Opening!

July 1, 2015

This amazing restoration project is nearing completion. Since last report, the Fort Howard Guard House Stockade has been installed, the pickets cut and painting is underway.

The installation of 200’ of the replicated stockade took 6 weeks to install by Heritage Hill Staff and volunteers.

350 immense 10” x 10” x 16’ high timbers were placed into a 4’ deep continuous trench side by side resulting in a 12’ high stockade wall.

Historic construction methods were followed based on extensive research. The original 1830’s Stockade enclosed the fort with a 350’ long and 350’ wide structure.

The Flagstaff was installed June 11 and is an impressive 70’ in height. The 1836 period, 25 star flag, will be raised at the Grand Opening on July 11 and 12.

Join the procession at 10 am on Saturday and noon on Sunday from the Garden Patio to the great gate at the fort. After the gates are opened, enter the fort with the color guard to the raising of the 15’ x 20’ flag.

Completion of the final landscaping throughout the Guard House site is planned for the middle of June. Learn more about the detailed and authentic restoration research and methods from Heritage Hill's skilled team at the Grand Opening weekend on July 11 and 12th.

Green Bay News Network & C.H.E.F. ~ Job Shadow at Heritage Hill

March 3, 2015

On Friday, February 27th, Tyler Reif – teenage son of Ryan & Shari Reif of Green Bay, accompanied Michael Lee, Member Services Director of the Green Bay News Network, on an exciting and informative Job Shadow experience at Heritage Hill State Historical Park.

The Reifs are members of a locally based home schooling group known as C.H.E.F. (Catholic Home Educating Families).

The day's assignment centered on a meeting with Kathleen Gussert, Manager of Corporate Relations & Private Events, and Susan Storzer, Visitor Services Manager.

Tyler took excellent notes, and learned many details about Heritage Hill's events and programs, including those especially designed for the home school community.

Tyler's job shadow visit also included a tour of the Private Event facilities – which are available for both business and family events, including conferences, workshops, weddings, and more.

Finally, Tyler was very excited to learn about many upcoming events being offered at Heritage Hill.

Even though this was a “school day” for Tyler, and a “work day” for Michael Lee, one could hardly justify a visit to Heritage Hill, without a stop in their Gift Shop – “just to look, of course”... well, except for the caramels, horehound, and rock candy.

Fort Howard Guard House Project

February 26, 2015

The Fort Howard Guardhouse project continues through the winter months with the construction of the interior furnishings.

The interiors of the Guardhouse and Commanders office are now completed, the next step is to furnish them in the 1836 time period. Research provided an accurate furnishing detail; hardwood writing desks, bookcases, and tables are several of the furniture pieces that are currently being constructed by talented staff and volunteers at Heritage Hill’s Daniel-Kress Restoration Center.

David Haack, Preservation carpenter (eight years with Heritage Hill), has been putting the final touches on the hardwood desks and book cases he constructed. Desks were used by soldiers to study in the Commander’s library. Also the commander's and adjutant's desks were used for daily paper work, and at times used to write correspondence documents to the war department in Washington; Several of these documents still exist today in the National archives, referred to as the quartermaster reports.

Painted pieces, constructed by volunteers, include pegboard hangers, shelves and gun racks for the guards' flint lock muskets. These pieces were painted in one of two colors identified in the research for the 1836 Fort Howard; Prussian Blue or Burnt Sienna. Both colors were historically ordered as powdered pigments, then mixed with either milk, water, or linseed oil.

Ariens Donates Job Site Vehicle to Heritage Hill

January 29, 2015

Christmas came early to Heritage Hill! On December 19th, Dan Ariens, President/CEO of Ariens Company, and Steve Nohr, from Ambrosius Outdoor Power, came to Heritage Hill to deliver a HUGE donation. Ariens Company donated a Gravely Atlas Job Site Vehicle (JSV) and accessories, worth over $22,000. Ambrosius donated their labor to assemble the vehicle and accessories.

Understanding the importance of a "fantastic product" like the Gravely Atlas JSV to Heritage Hill, Dan Ariens said, "The work that Heritage Hill does is very important to Northeast Wisconsin, and we're happy that the Atlas can help provide much-needed relief and further their cause."

The Gravely Atlas JSV and accessories will be of great use, year round, at the park. With accessories like a plow mount and 72" snow plow, poly premium roof and poly front doors, a fixed glass windshield, wiper kit, and heater defrost kit, the JSV is perfect for plowing snow in the winter months and for driving in frigid temperatures. Once the warmer months roll around, park restoration and maintenance staff will be utilizing the vehicle's towing and hauling capabilities and large cargo beds.

Nick Backhaus, Heritage Hill Restoration Manager, plans to use the new vehicle in a variety of ways: "The enclosed cab and snow plow options will certainly be better suited for many of our snow removal needs within the park. Since the Atlas is built for heavier use, we anticipate reduced wear on park equipment, specifically on our golf carts, that are often times overburdened while towing or hauling throughout the park."

The Gravely Atlas JSV also has a dual-range continuously variable transmission and on-demand all-wheel drive, which will be useful all over Heritage Hill's 50-acre property.

Heritage Hill State Historical Park is located at 2640 South Webster Avenue.
