Clark House Museum Update

It’s been “one of those weeks” here at the Clark House Historian’s actual house. Nothing unfortunate, but assorted “real life” tasks have kept me from finishing several more substantial posts. (Yes, there will be another photo analysis post or two featuring Cyrus Clark. And tintypes, too.)

News from Clark House Museum director Nina Look

Fortunately, Jonathan Clark House museum director Nina Look has just written and distributed the September, 2020, newsletter for the Friends of the Jonathan Clark House, and I can share it with you today. It’s filled with news and photos about the Clark House and some of our current and future projects.

Looking ahead to 2021—young historians wanted!

Education, and developing the next generation of history lovers, is a big part of what we do. If you know a school-aged person or two that lives in or near Ozaukee County and the Clark House, and that might be interested in participating in museum events, send an email to Nina Look at

Different ways to support the Clark House mission

The Jonathan Clark House museum exists through the generosity of donors, volunteers and community organizations. They help us “bring history to life,” and make possible the long-term restorations and improvements to the historic structure of the Clark House itself. Perhaps you’d like to be part of the action? Donors are always appreciated, and nominations to the JCH board are open until November 16. Contact if you are interested, or know someone who might be.

Thanks for the support!

Yes, we would like to have your support, too! And we’ll happily add your name to the list:

Some of what we do, and the folks that make it possible

The Jonathan Clark House is more than just a handsome old building. Our volunteer staff is always learning and sharing more information about the house, its contents, the families that called the Clark House home and their neighbors, and house’s place in local and Wisconsin history.

It takes a lot of work—and a lot of people—to help the museum continue to grow and better fulfill its mission in the community. Here’s a look at some current projects and the people working on them. (Thanks for the nice mention, Nina.)

Wrapping it up, for now

Thanks to Pam and Alexis for their service to the Jonathan Clark House. And check out more Clark House photographs. Click the page to see them better.

That’s all for now. More Clark House Historian coming Monday.


P. S. All the group and non-mask photos in the September newsletter were taken in pre-pandemic days. We’re looking forward to being able to offer in-person activities at the Jonathan Clark House as soon as it’s safe to do so. Until then, take care and be well.
