About Old World Wisconsin
The 480 acre open-air museum, the largest in the country, depicts
housing and life of the early settlers in the 1800's. The site contains
more than 60 historical structures, many of them on the Historical
Building Register, along with simulated working businesses. A blacksmith
beating on a hot piece of iron, a wheelwright creating wheels for a
wagon, or a cobbler making authentic shoes of the era are just a few of
the sights that you will experience in this rolling wooded museum.
The campus contains 7 different villages that are accessible by either a
short walk or a free tram that drives between the villages all day. Each
village represents a different culture. African America, German,
Finnish, Norwegian and Polish all have settlements to visit. There will
be docents and re-enactors at each village demonstrating life in early
Wisconsin. (Great photo ops)

Explaining Dried Animal Fertilizer
by Sandy Matson
We are fortunate to have a Wisconsin PSA
member and OWW photographer and teacher, Sandy Matson join us. She has
photographed numerous events at OWW and had furnished the park with
hundreds of images. Sandy will meet us and give us valuable information
on "must see" areas and what to photograph. She will also guide folks
new to the park.

So, if your interested in history,
re-enactment, buildings, or fall foliage, there will be something for
everyone to photograph at Old World Wisconsin.
Do not miss this great photo opportunity.
