Door County’s first residents will be featured at the third talk this year presented by the Gibraltar Historical Association this Thursday. Dave Lea, a Fish Creek resident and amateur anthropologist will share what life was like for the Potawatomi or “Keepers of the Fire” that were one of three large tribes who dominated Fish Creek. He says interesting discoveries in Door County date back well before the first white settlers in the 1600’s.
The “Our First Door County Residents” presentation by Lea will be at 7 pm this Thursday at the Old Town Hall in Fish Creek. The event is free to the public.
