Many Plymouth friends attended the St. Luke’s School of Nursing capping service which was held Tuesday evening. Twenty-seven students received their caps which symbolizes the successful completion of the six months pre-clinical period. Among these students was Miss Caroline Faas, 925 Eastern Ave., sister of Mrs. Edward Foley Jr., of this city.

Plymouth Historical Museum

Our Mission

The Plymouth Historical Society's mission is to educate, preserve, advance and disseminate knowledge of the history of Plymouth.

Building History

Our current home, built in 1876, was owned by William Sebald, and built of cream city brick.  In its early beginnings Sebald sold root beer and ale’s on the first floor while raising his family and living on the second floor.  In the lower level was a cistern which was utilized to keep the beverages cool as well as a kitchen and dining room.  In 2006, the society purchased the Sebald building and undertook extensive renovations.  Today the first floor, which is handicapped accessible, is home to many changing displays of local interest.  View upcoming Events/Exhibits.

Founded in 1990, the Plymouth Historical Society is a Wisconsin, non-profit corporation 501c(3) with articles of incorporation filed July 11, 2990. Bylaws were adopted by the board of directions August 26, 1990. The society is affiliated with the Wisconsin State Historical Society and files an annual report to the same.

What We Do

As Plymouth offers a rich historical legacy, the historical society is a vehicle for sharing this information to the public. This is accomplished through tours, exhibits, research, publications, educational offerings, as well as an on-site research library offering information related to Plymouth and Sheboygan county.

Our Board and Volunteers

The Plymouth Historical Society supplements and compliments other historical organizations in the county. It is operated by a volunteer board of director. There are no paid staff. The board develops and monitors a budget, establishes yearly goals while operating the museum in a professional manner. Other volunteers assist with visitors, exhibits, fund raising events and the like.
