Join us for another Passport in Time oral history project as we explore the history and future use of the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) property known as Forest Lodge! This 872-acre estate is part of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, and was gifted to the U.S. Forest Service (FS) in 1999 by Mary Griggs Burke, whose family owned the property for three generations. PIT participants will start out with a "course" in oral history techniques and theory. Then, equipped with these skills, will fan out to interview informants who have been part of the transformation of Forest Lodge from the end of a private inholding to public domain with the FS. All of our recorded data will be transcribed and accessioned into the Wisconsin Historical Society's collection. Recording equipment will be provided, however participants are welcome to bring their own equipment and, if preferred, may wish to include a digital camera in their "kits." Our projects are a great success, and always prove to be very fascinating. We hope you'll join us this summer for another foray into Wisconsin's historic past!
