Mission: The OCHS seeks to preserve, advance, and disseminate knowledge of the history and heritage of Ozaukee County through historic preservation, education, and programming.
The Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of almost all volunteers persuing our Mission through the sharing of Stony Hill School, Ozaukee County Pioneer Village and the Hazel Wirth Archives & Research Center.
For over 50 years, the Ozaukee County Historical Society has developed and maintained the Ozaukee County Pioneer Village, and the County Archival Records, which are available at the Hazel Wirth Center, N57 W6406 Center St., Cedarburg. All researchers are invited to use these county records that are updated as materials are made available. Stony Hill School, which is the original birth place of National Flag Day, was acquired in 1977, making a one room school experience available to students, along with an annual ceremony on National Flag Day held the Sunday before June 14th of each yea.
Volunteer Opportunities: People needed to help on committees, events, and historical research. Event volunteers get free admission and a meal! Work behind the scenes or day of the event.
