Satterlee Clark House Of Horicon

Talk at Rock River Archaeological Society

January 15, 2020

 

Lahnie Neu, Horicon Historical Society member and curator of the Satterlee Clark House of Horicon, will be the speaker for the Rock River Archaeological Society meeting at 6:30PM on January 15, 2020.  The program will be held at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center at N7725 Hwy. 28, Horicon, WI.  Doors open at 6:00 PM. from the public parking lot of the Center.

The Satterlee Clark House is located at 322 Winter St., Horicon, WI.  It is an example of Georgian architecture that was started in 1885 and completed in 1863.  Satterlee Clark served in the State Senate (1862-1872) and in the State Assembly in 1873.

Lahnie and her family moved to Horicon in 2006 and she has always loved history, especially the “Hands On” kind which will explain why she and her family are Historical Re-enactors.  Lahnie has been the curator of the Satterlee Clark House since 2006 and currently also fills the job of treasurer.

As she tells about the house she will also share information about the school house, built in 1884, and moved to the site from the Hustiford area in the 1980’s. Another building that will be talked about is the shed which now houses blacksmithing and farm equipment.

It promises to be a very fun evening as Lahnie’s family will be there in period dress.  There will be artifacts, brought for display, to be talked about. The Neus will fill us in on events that take place at the Satterlee Clark House during any given year such as Living History Days, Artifact Digs, an Ice Cream Social, October Halloween weekend events and the beautiful Christmas Open House.

The public is invited to the program and also to stay for the refreshments offered after the program.  Information on upcoming programs will be available.
