Excursions

The History Club has visited a myriad of places over the semesters. Many of our visits have been to sites that are traditionally visited by historical groups such as Pendarvis, the Ham House, the Mining Museum and the Cunningham Museum. We also have visited sites that are of natural and environmental importance as well as historical, such as Effigy Mounds National Monument, the EB Lyons Nature Center, and the Mines of Spain recreational area. This past spring we visited Taliesin, near Spring Green. This is where Frank Lloyd Wright's historic home and farmstead are located as well as his architectural school..

History is involved with most all facets of life. It goes way beyond the traditional museums and historic sites. It can be enjoyed and seen in such things as plays, musicals, film and so on. We encourage you to make suggestions of places or performances you would like to see the group visit or attend.
