Tornado Damage at Old World Wisconsin
On Monday night a tornado touched down in the small village of Eagle,Wisconsin, about 15 minutes from here. Many homes were destroyed and countless others were damaged. Thankfully, there were no serious injuries. Old World Wisconsin is located in Eagle. It's one of our favorite historical sites and I've blogged about it twice; last summer and at Christmas time.
Old World Wisconsin was hit bit the tornado and is currently closed for clean-up. Thankfully there was no major damage to the historical buildings, but many trees were lost. Check out the amazing photos of the damage here. Our granddaughters are coming to visit soon and two of them are scheduled to attend the One Room Schoolhouse Rocks day camp there. We're all hoping that the site will be able to re-open soon.
The Old World Wisconsin Foundation has established a fund to help with the clean-up expenses. Here's a link for anyone that would like to contribute.
