Pulaski Historic Bus Tour #1

 9:30 a.m.- 11:30 am (Behind Zielinski’s Ballroom)

 Bus Tour #1 (Morning – Village of Pulaski)

 Period: 1880 -1920 – $10/person

Please join us for a “Historic Tour Of The Town”, a look back at the early years of Pulaski from the mid 1880s to 1920. Our morning bus trip on March 7th with begin with the beautifully constructed Zielinski’s Ballroom and Tavern, with a telling of this building’s vibrant history. From there we will look at more of historic downtown Pulaski touching sites such as Kolocheski’s Saloon (Classic’s), Segall’s Annex & Department Store, Joseph LeFerve’s Drug Store/Post Office, Kurowski Saloon and Hotel (Rodger’s Corner Club), Anton Glowinski’s Grocery Store (Another Round), and Mierzwa’s store (then the Liberty Bank). From there we will cross St. Augustine Street where you will learn the history of the first White Store (on the site of Brad’s Service Station), the Nunnery (which was moved in its entirety a block away), Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, and the Polish National Church, and the Nsight Riordan home aka the “Old House”.  A short slide show will be shown at the house and cupcakes will be given out to celebrate their 110 years in business on March 10th.   

Along the way there will be many stories about the early folks of Pulaski and the lives they led (many forthright and perhaps some a little scandalous).  Don’t miss the chance to join us for a morning tour of exploration back into our community’s past in our “Historic Tour Of The Town”.

Pulaski Historic Bus Tour #2

 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

 Bus Tour #2 (Afternoon – Angelica, Frazer Corners, Hofa Park, and Laney)

 Period: 1860 -1920 – $10/person

On the second bus historic tour “What Happened To Our Booming Towns?”  (held on the afternoon of March 7th) we’ll explore the histories of Krakow & several small communities west of Pulaski. We’ll look at Angelica, once a booming hub of commerce with its sawmills, hotels, livery stables, saloons, and more. Why did the railroads take such an interest in this little town, pulling in politicians and tycoons only to abandon it for Pulaski? We have some answers to that. Beyond Angelica we will look at Frazer’s Corners, Hofa Park, and Laney. We’ll discuss the area’s Civil War Veterans including one that rose to become Wisconsin’s 18th governor (William H. Upham). Gold mines in Angelica or Maple Grove? Newspaper men of the early 1870s thought so but in actuality there was only a 2lb lump of copper and a petrified corpse….  Who were the Good Templars and what’s their connection to chewing gum? Who were the “Clumsies”? We’ll take a closer look at Hofa Park and visit one of its historic saloons and stores. There may even be time for a ghost story or two…..

We hope you’ll join us for round two of our historic bus tours on March 7th and leave with more questions than answers. It promises to be exciting and informative for all those that attend our tour “What Happened To Our Booming Towns?”
