The Fire Museum is open from Memorial Weekend through October 8. On October 8, 1871, a firestorm roared through Peshtigo, Wisconsin, and surrounding areas, killing over 2,000 people and destroying the entire city and its livelihood. The Peshtigo Fire Museum preserves this heritage through storytelling, exhibits of artifacts from the fire, displays of the lifestyle at the time of the disaster, and a cemetery to memorialize those who died.
Relics, pictures and news articles tell the astounding story of the 1871 Peshtigo fire, the same day as the more famous Chicago fire, in which at least nine times as many people perished. State officials in Madison did not even learn of the fire until 3 days later, because the only telegraph line was burned.
A wide array of historic items pertaining to local history, such as clothing, quilts, memorabilia, farm equipment, telephone switchboards, boats, musical instruments, kitchen items, military uniforms and the like, donated by Peshtigo-area residents, are displayed throughout the historic church building and provide local color.
Recognizing the museum is curated by local volunteers, it is very nicely done. Definitely worth a stop.

We make many trips up north and NEVER pass Seguin's. It is a mandatory stop. They have the biggest selections of cheeses! They have samples of cheese, salsas, cracker spreads, etc. When we have kids with it is also a major ice cream stop. They also have an awesome gift shop, including clothing, moccasins and t-shirts, and a never ending assortment of wine.

I spend almost every day here in the Summer. Fishing, boating, kayaking, picnicing, barbecuing. Not your thing? The spectacular library, many excellent restaurants and shopping across the street. Don't forget Fido. Dogs love this place!

Forgotten Fire Winery is owned by Lindsay and Joe Callow. The Callow"s opened the winery on October 1st 2011.Forgotten Fire Winery began with just 5 acres of land, 4 white wines, 3 red wines and the dreams of one headstrong couple. In 2012, 14 adjacent acres were purchased for future growth of the business. In 2013, the winery expanded to reach around 9000 square feet of space.
We stopped in about 10 minutes before closing. The staff was extremely friendly and stayed open late to handle our tasting. They even gave us a couple of extra tastings of their beers and no additional cost. The wine was good as were the beers.Thanks for visiting us and for the kind words about our products! See you next time you are in the area.

Designed in the early part of the 20th century by Ossian Cole Simonds, Henes Park, named for philanthropist John Henes, opened in 1907. It combines rocky shores, a sandy swimming beach, woodland trails, ponds and fountains and picnic areas.
There are three pavilions for large events and reunions, with ample wast containers. There is a centrally located restroom area.
On a recent sunny Saturday, every pavilion was booked. Unfortunately, the pavilions were dusty and loaded with cobwebs. If you know this and bring cleaning supplies, it's bearable.
Two other areas for improvement: More restrooms and larger built-in grills.
On weekdays, the park is filled with walkers, joggers and cyclists. Summer evenings, it's a place to take in cooling bay breezes. The park provides areas for solitude as well as group activities.
The park is owned by the city, but managed by a committee. Descendants of John Henes still lead the committee. The park is a treasure.

Lots of interesting stuff here, but hours seem to be irregular. If you get there when it's open, you'll find friendly and knowledgeable guides. There's a miniature sawmill and a restored pioneer cabin. The location on an island In the Menominee Rivers adds to the charm. If you want t learn the basics of Marinette history, this is the place.

Upper Peninsula Inspired, formerly Garden Bay Winery, is a wine tasting room. We carry 4 Upper Peninsula Wineries (Garden Bay Winery, Northern Sun Winery, Leigh's Garden Winery, and Threefold Vine Winery) and 4 Upper Peninsula Breweries (Upper Hand, BlackRocks, Ore Dock, and Keweenaw Brewing Company) for tasting and for purchase. We have Michigan Made Products including gourmet food and candy, local honey, jams, maple syrup, and honey. Local artists have included their pieces throughout the store for purchase.
Friendly staff, they were NOT stingy on the wine tasting samples (as suggested by someone else's review). As a matter of fact, I've paid more than $5 for a tasting at other out-of-state locations, so paying $5 to taste 3 different wines AND keep the souvenir glass to take home with you, is quite reasonable from my experience. But, even better, was the service and the fact that I was actually given an additional taste of two other samples (7 tastings total in reality). Are their wines top-notch? That is for you to decide based on your own experience of various wines and understanding that different regional wines have different personalities based on where and how grapes are grown and processed. I really liked Garden Bay's german-style reisling blend, so I bought a bottle to take back home with me. If you're in the area on vacation and looking for something "touristy" to do in town, stop in and give Garden Bay Winery a try. We, as a society in whole, spend so much more money on other things without hesitation, I don't see why dropping in to try some pretty good wines for $5 would cause anyone pause (other than someone being a non-drinker).

My husband and I visited this museum Memorial Day and were pleasantly surprised to find such a large variety of unique historical items. The museum is housed in a former Irish Catholic Church which still has all of the original stained glass windows, which are absolutely beautiful.
One of the first exhibits is of two Native American wooden canoes found in the area that have been carbon dated and are over 1000 years old!
The two gentlemen in charge were extremely knowledgeable about all of the exhibits. There is a rich military history for the county as well as a surprising number of NFL players from the area.
Depending on your level of interest in history, the museum could take as little as 30 minutes to cover or as much as two hours, but I would recommend spending at least one hour there; it is well worth the time.

Thanks for the review! . . . And now we re-stocked on sunglasses too. February has been crazy warm.

Since Schooners is located in a residential neighborhood - there's been a tavern here as long as I can remember - I was expecting more of a neighborhood bar. Instead, Schooners draws people from across the community. Still, we all found places to park in the ample parking lot.
Our group arrived at 4:30 p.m., and found the front part of the bar filled with customers, so we had to take a table in the back. I'm not complainingg, though, as the service was good and the food was what you'd expect from a pub. The menu was varied, our meal arrived quickly, and the wait staff was friendly.
This is a great place for Friday night fish fries and large groups of friends. Lots of locals, no Yuppies, no hipsters, no ferns.
