The Empire Area Museum Complex celebrates Heritage Day!

There will be demonstrations in the making of apple cider, ice cream, butter, apple butter, maple sugar candy, sauerkraut, and other demonstrations using turn of the century methods.
Other entertainment and activities will include: black smithing, woodworking, recorded old phonograph and music box music and player piano demonstrations.
There will also be several old tractors, cars and bicycles spread throughout the museum grounds providing various demonstrations.
According to chairperson Dave Taghon, our 42nd Heritage Days Celebration marks the end of another great season of keeping our past alive.
Operated by the Empire Area Heritage Group, the museum’s four building complex- Main Building; One-Room School; 1911 Hose House (Fire Station); and the Billy Beeman Barn- is recognized by many as one of the most unique in northern Michigan.
The local Fire House Quilters have donated another beautiful quilt to be raffled off during the festivities to benefit the Empire Museum Tickets will be available until the 3:00 PM raffle.
Please bring the whole family and join in on the activities.
We are always looking for new exhibitors for any old crafts, collections or displays!!
