The Belgian Heritage Center is making improvements as well as enhancing the story of the Belgian settlement in southern Door County. The mission to preserve and promote the area’s unique culture, history and architecture is on display at the old St. Mary of the Snows Church in Namur. Co-president Joe Alexander shares some of the recent work done this year to the building.
The Belgian Heritage Center holds events throughout the summer including a traditional fish boil this Saturday evening. You can find more information on the Belgian Heritage Center and the fish boil with this story online.
