Who Are We?

At the Liberty Grove Historical Society, we seek to captivate, as we recount with authenticity, great stories from the town’s past. We are your starting place for exploring the people, places and events that have shaped Ellison Bay, Gills Rock, and Rowleys Bay, and the surrounding area’s past.

We have preserved one of Northern Door County’s most beautiful spots. Our “grand” property overlooks the waters of Ellison Bay. We have had the great honor of partnering with the Door County Land Trust and the Town of Liberty Grove to preserve the “Grand View” in Ellison Bay. Our property also provides the entrance to a beautiful scenic overlook and the Grandview Town Park.

We work together to make this society more than just a piece of property, more than simply fundraiser after fundraiser. We are shaping part of history, and we are saving pieces of the past…one story, one picture, one building at a time.
