Ozaukee County Historical Society Pioneer Village 2016

For over 45 years members of the Ozaukee County Historical Society (OCHS) have been working hard to keep history alive at Pioneer Village in Saukville, Wisconsin. Just a few miles north of Cedarburg, this unique rural village, nestled amidst the rolling Hawthorne Hills, invites visitors to take a step back in time and experience life as it was for pioneers who settled in Southeastern Wisconsin more than 150 years ago.

Since its inception, more than 20 beautifully restored buildings, including the Cedarburg Railroad Depot, have been painstakingly moved to the 7.5 acre village area. Each structure represents a style of construction developed by the various immigrant groups who called Wisconsin home, and visitors to the site are encouraged to walk the gravel trails, study the homes and the work places of those original settlers, and let their imaginations wander … what it must have been like living back then without the amenities that nowadays we all take for granted?

Open to the public at weekends from Memorial Day Weekend through October, special events and activities are held in Pioneer Village on certain weekends.
