Come celebrate the end of the seasonal harvest at Heritage Hill. Help with chores at the farm and see what fresh fruits and vegetables are in the farm kitchen and what recipes are being made. Stop by each of the gardens to view our bountiful harvest. Watch local beer brewers make beer from hops grown here at Heritage Hill in the summer kitchen. Visitors can help make sauerkraut with crops from our fields. Make a seasonal print at the print shop and check out what the blacksmith is making. Do not miss the Fur Trade area to find out how the fur traders prepared for the cold season. Meet local artisans and see their seasonal arts and crafts. View Heritage Hill’s quilt collection and see the Evergreen Quilters of Green Bay make quilts. Kids, make your own scarecrow craft to take home and more!

Heritage Hill is hosting author Michael Leannah for the presentation and signing of his book, "Something for Everyone: Memories of Lauerman Brothers Department Store." As it brings to life the people who worked and shopped at Lauermans, "Something for Everyone" tells the larger story of the golden age of department stores in the United States and transports readers back to their own favorite shopping destinations.


"Something for Everyone" traces the history of the Lauerman enterprise and its importance to the community of Marinette and dozens of countries in northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula. A Marinette native and onetime Lauermans employee himself, author Michael Leannah draws on his extensive research and interviews with former staff and customers to create a unique tapestry of family, business, and community history. He takes readers on a nostalgic tour of the store's most memorable and delightful features, from the plethora of merchandise offered to the record-listening booths to the famous "frosted malt" ice cream cones.
