Before closing for the winter, the new Belgian Heritage Center will host Barb Chisholm for a presentation on the Peshtigo Fire of 1871. The fire did major damage to the area and specifically some Belgian settlements. According to Ann Jinkins board member for the Belgian Heritage Center, Chisholm’s account of her great-grandparents story is very popular.
The presentation starts at 1:00 pm on Sunday, November 6th. The Belgian Heritage Center just opened in Brussels.
