The Pleasant Prairie Historical Society held a very successful Grand Opening, Museum Dedication & Fundraiser last Thursday! We still have some envelopes left on our "Revealing Wall" if you were unable to make it to the event and would like to support the Historical Society. When you choose an envelope, you have a chance of winning a gift card. Please email Museum Manager Kate at kate@pleasantprairiehistoricalsociety.orgor call 262-577-5115 to make your donation.

If we can raise the amount left on the "Revealing Wall," the Historical Society will reach its fundraising goal for 2021 which will help support the Historical Society & Museum and fund a new exhibit for 2022. 

Though we have some envelopes left, we will still let you in on what they reveal! The image is a self-portrait painting of Jack E. Thomsen and his dog. Jack E. Thomsen owned Transcendental Golf (now Pineway Golf) on 116th Street, just down the road from Dublin School, for many years. We are planning an exhibit about Thomsen, who patented the Golf Ball Pyramid Stacker among other things, to open (tentatively) in Fall 2022.
