Historic sites operated by the Hales Corners Historical Society will be open for visitors on Saturday, June 6. They are the Ben Hunt Cabin located on the grounds of the Hales Corners library, 5885 S. 116th St., and the Hale Summer Kitchen on Janesville Road at approximately 114th St. Admission is free.
The Hunt Cabin features artifacts made by Ben Hunt or created under his tutelage. This June, visitors will also be able to see the results of some house cleaning in a shed at the cabin. There’s a homemade rake, an old bird house, an antler, and various items that were probably raw materials for another of Ben’s projects. For more information, call 414-425-3312.
The summer kitchen displays artifacts from the early days of settlement. It was built about 1850 by Seneca Hale, the first permanent settler in what is now Hales Corners. This June, it will also show what happens when squirrels come down the chimney and can’t find a way out. Repairs are in progress. For more information, call 414-425-5572.
