Stowell House at WCTU a success

Israel Stowell Temperance House

The presentation of the Stowell House to the WCTU was a success. The house was shown to the National WCTU convention. Women from most of the 50 states were represented at the four day convention, which kicked off with a visit to Old World Wisconsin. The Stowell House was one of two big features Friday night, including Milwaukee District Attorney. The WCTU audience was in awe over the mention of 33,000 books in the Stowell house. Hopefully this will raise awareness to other groups. The Stowell House now has even more national recognition, and we continue to raise awareness daily with presentations locally, as well as the work being done on the house. We can always use donations, either in the typical form, or in the form of labor, tools, services (such as tree cutters who can help remove the trees that threaten to fall on the house), or perhaps you know a bit of history on it that we don’t? Stop on by the Historical Society Saturday or Monday 10-2 or by appointment. Your help is much appreciated.
