· Boxes with lids (like those the paper reams come in) or Plastic containers about the same size

What is the Documenting Project?

Text Box: a database for protection. This process will allow us to print up better tags, make the collection available online to members, and most importantly, it will allow us to know what we have in the collection. 

We have developed a simple process that allows anyone to help; with the thousands of objects we have that help is really needed to get the whole collection documented! 

Text Box: Many of the society’s objects were collected in the 1940’s through the 60’s; we do not know the history of a lot of our objects. Most what we know is on an old tag used by Dr Klofanda. The tags were created from left over medical documents. Some of the information was lost, or more likely, never collected. 

Through a grant from the CACF we have been able to purchase the best in class museum software. This has allowed us to start collecting what information we have and entering it into

There are a whole lot of worthy places where you can spend your precious spare time this summer and we would like you to consider helping us at the Calumet County Historical Society Museum. We are looking for volunteer help on Sundays from 1-4 just to help us be available to our visitors on our large property.


It really is as simple as being a greeter from 1 to 4 on Sunday afternoons this summer.


You will be with a seasoned Historical Society member and your only task is really just to help us be available to our guests and to monitor our 2 buildings. If you like to stay busy and if visits are low we have other tasks but we’d be just as happy if you just explored out 2 buildings; feel free to bring your family and explore with them!


We are a 100% volunteer organization and we have a museum that has free admission and that makes people that are willing to donate just a few hours priceless. Our membership, financials and museums visits have been growing but the people willing to help on Sundays has been a real struggle. We are going to change that this year.


If you would like to give us a hand please call Terry 920-849-4042 or Mike 920-216-7461 and of course you can email us at


Please consider helping us a Sunday or two this summer!
