History Happy Hour

Explore Local Tavern History and Support the Society's Meeme House Inn Project!  From Civil War mustering to civic debate and engagement, our taverns were integral in shaping our county's history.
History Happy Hour will be held on the dates below, from 5:30 to 6:30 pm, exploring the history of a different tavern at each event.

A raffle will begin at 5:30 pm and a short historical overview of the establishment will take place at 5:45 pm. The raffle winner will be announced at 6:15 pm.
History Happy Hour is a 21+ event with all proceeds going toward the Manitowoc County Historical Society’s Meeme House Inn restoration project.  There is no formal admission charge but donations are appreciated for the Meeme House Inn Restoration project.
