MEQUON — The Jonathan Clark House Museum recently held a celebration for Friends of Jonathan Clark House members and their guests at the historic 1848 museum. Young historian volunteers were in costume as the Clark Family and played vintage outdoor games with the guests.

The Pie on the Patio event gave everyone the opportunity to step back to 1848, if only for a few hours. Tours of the house furnished in period artifacts included conversations about the heritage of southeast Wisconsin’s early settlers. Guests enjoyed delicious fresh-baked fruit pies donated by Outpost Natural Foods as well as wine from Cedar Creek Winery. The event and piano music of Luke Edgewood and his assistant Allison were provided by Jim Marshall at Spectrum Investment Advisors in Mequon. Auctioneer Joe Cielak held a lively auction of items donated by area historical organizations and local businesses. Proceeds will be used for museum educational programming.

The museum, located on the corner of Bonniwell and Cedarburg roads in Mequon, is a stone home built in the Greek Revival-style.

The organization’s summer programming is underway with the next event being Early Settler Chores, from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17. The event features activities and fun for all ages. Individual and group tours are also available.
