Closed Until April 6, 2020

Hi Folks, Because of the Covid19 outbreak we need to take a break. By order of the SCHRC board of directors the Research Center is closed to ALL volunteers, researchers and staff until at least April 6, 2020. Hopefully, this will go quickly and we’ll be back soon. But, until then, we are all out of the office so please hold your phone calls and emails. Take care and stay well. Will have more info as we go along.

A Hidden Gem

The Sheboygan County Historical Research Center is a hidden gem saving resources that would have otherwise been lost. A collaborative effort lasting nearly thirty years, the Research Center works with everyone to collect and share information.

Research Success Story

Many thanks for the amazing response to my request for information about Edward F. Zinns and his Milwaukee Graphite Company. For a quarter-century I was Head of Reference at the State Archives of Michigan, so I know good public service when I see it. Thanks for monitoring your business email after-hours. Given the caliber of the service you provide, I am not surprised. Your outstanding work on my behalf needs to be rewarded, and I would like to show my gratitude with a donation to your institution.
