Join us on Saturday, May 7, for an exciting day tracing the steps of one of South-East Wisconsin’s most illustrious German-speaking immigrants: Ernst Klinkert. We will take a guided tour of the “Klinkert Roadhouse,” one of Klinkert’s impressive German-style tavern buildings, and the “Klinkert Barn,” a magnificent Kentucky blue-grass-style stable for his prized race horses. Afterwards, we will hold our annual meeting and dinner at the Reefpoint Brew House, followed by a presentation by Art & Architectural Historian Pippin Michelli on “Ernst Klinkert and His World: A German Immigrant Builder and Brewer in Racine, WI.”
