Ephraim Village Hall

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 22 February 2021 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The picturesque Village of Ephraim is nestled in the heart of the Door County Peninsula. Settled in 1853 by Norwegian Moravians on the tranquil shores of Eagle Harbor, Ephraim takes pride in its Scandinavian roots. Ephraim’s rich heritage has been carefully preserved in more than 30 historical sites throughout the village, 11 on the National Register of Historic Places. Step into the past by taking a guided/self-guided historic walking tour or visiting a village museum.

Ephraim has the most accessible shoreline of all the Door County communities. Explore Eagle Harbor from a Jet Ski, kayak or paddle board. Rent a family-size pontoon boat or enjoy the panoramic view of Ephraim and nearby Peninsula State Park on a sailboat.

Within walking distance of most accommodations are shops and galleries set in century-old barns, rustic log cabins and vintage homes. Visitors will have an unforgettable shopping experience with the wide range of high quality items including clothing, jewelry, home furnishings, garden accessories, fine art and much more.

Originally to house municipal functions, the building has also been used as a library and for various social functions. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985 and on the State Register of Historic Places in 1989.

What a charming place. I like the stonework. I hope your partner is recovering well.

@Ruthiebear: Thankfully, lack of mobility is no longer an issue. So the caretaking is no longer 24/7. I quickly put the commode and gliding shower chair away. Now the physical therapy is increasing in regularity.
