FINAL SUMMER OF 2020

Because of COVID-19 the Albion Park Shelter and the bathrooms will remain closed this year of 2020.   Therefore, we will NOT have our Pie Social or Academy Café in the Park this summer.

Since there will be NO visitors, we can get some improvements done to the Museum.   Without the Museum buildings we could not preserve or store the artifacts all of you have donated over the 60+ years of our existence.

Our electricity will be upgraded to 200 amps to allow us to install baseboard heating.  Eventually we may be able to have the Museum open Fall and Spring and even maybe Winter.   The front concrete steps need attention as well.  Both of these improvements can cost upwards of $6,000.

So we appeal to our members and friends and any interested parties who would like to donate money to our improvements – send your donations to our Treasurer:  Eric Baker, 584 Academy Drive, Edgerton, WI  53534.   Your donations are tax deductible.

THANK YOU!

Edgerton, WI - Albion Academy founded in 1854 with 2 buildings and a 3rd building added in 1868. First co-educational academy in WI, allowing boys and girls to learn and recite together in the same classroom. Kumlien Hall, opened in 1969, is a 2-story replica of South Hall. This education followed the one-room country school, e.g. Sheepskin School. The school house was moved from State 59 west of Edgerton to the Albion campus in January, 1960.
