A Message from the Board of Directors
Even though it was necessary to keep the museum closed during Burgerfest the museum was open every other weekend during the summer. Music in the Park was the highlight of the summer along with the Saturday jazz band and the visit from the Model A club. Plans are to host Santa and Mrs. Claus on Saturday, December 4. The museum will be decorated in a holiday theme and every child accompanied by an adult will receive a present.
Your historical society is undertaking several major projects over the coming year. The Miller-Piehl Building (1894), which serves as our 1930s country store, is in need on tuck pointing and repair. The cost is estimated to be about $35,000.00. Fortunately, money has been set aside over the years to cover the cost of the renovation from the historical society budget. More information about the building is included in this newsletter.
Some of the most unique and significant buildings in Seymour history no longer exist. Board member Kurt Boettcher is working with a noted Wisconsin artist to mount a large mural on the west side of the Miller-Piehl Building featuring buildings long forgotten. The large, colorful painting will include some present buildings and influential Seymour people from the early 1900s. The project is being financed through donations.

Christmas Open House and Kids' Christmas December 4th

Families are invited to the museum between 10:00 and noon on Saturday, December 4th for the Christmas open house. This year's theme is a "Santa's Workshop." Janice Eick and her sisters Jean and Joan, have done an outstanding job decorating the museum for Christmas.
The second floor has been turned into Santa's workshop with numerous decorated trees and winter scenes. Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will be on hand to greet visitors and distribute holiday cheer. The first 100 children will receive a free gift courtesy of a generous donor. Consistent with the North Pole theme, children have the opportunity to play with the Santa train, play with vintage toys and take home a pixie elf hat. Christmas cookies will add to the holiday cheer. This is an excellent opportunity to treat the children and tour the festive museum.
