A History Treasure Tour is a date set aside for Brown county residents to tour many historical sites and museums and it is all FREE.  This years tour is on Wednesday, May 17th from 4-8pm.  The Howard-Suamico Historical Society will be showcasing the renovation of the barn at Ancestry Acres, located at 12787 Velp Avenue just North of the Suamico Village Hall.  You have seen the work going on, now see what was done.  Members of the Society will discuss the restoration work and tell how it was accomplished.  Talk to a farmer who farmed years ago when farms were plentiful in the area.  Also talk to FFA students from Bayport High School and see how things are different today.  Have a snack and reminisce.  The tour is open to the public and for all ages, so bring the children and grandchildren too.  This is the first event to be held at that location.

Other locations to tour include the National Railroad Museum, Heritage Hill, Hazelwood, The Masonic Lodge, The Automobile Gallery, Neville Public Museum and the Oneida Nation Museum, among others.  Brochures and maps are available at each location showing all the participants.  Parking at ancestry Acres will be on the farm grounds or next door at the Suamico village Hall.
