This historic village began in the winter of 1853, when a group of Norwegian Moravians walked across the ice from Green Bay to establish Ephraim, a biblical word meaning “doubly fruitful.” Today, the Ephraim Historical Foundation shares the stories of these pioneers and those who have shaped Ephraim’s history. Founded in 1949 to preserve the village’s one-room Pioneer Schoolhouse, the Ephraim Historical Foundation maintains and shares the history of this Door County community. The organization operates six historic buildings, including five museums and a research library, gives guided tours of Ephraim, curates archival and 3D collections, and shares the community’s history through programs and events. Museums open mid-June through mid-October. For more information visit or call 920.854.9688
