From 1991 to 2006, the SHS ran the Crossroads Rendezvous historical reenactment at Peninsula Park every third weekend in May, bringing thousands of visitors to Saukville and providing an incredibly unique educational experience for area children and their families. Revenue from the event funded the restoration of the 1912 Firehouse, located on Mill Street in Saukville, that the Historical Society calls home.
In the fall of 2017, Mary Boyle and Sara Dahmen, two historical reenactors from Port Washington, decided it was time to bring the Crossroads Rendezvous back. Together, with their families and the Saukville Historical Society, they are excited to introduce a new generation of visitors to the magic of living history and the important part “the crossroads” of Saukville played in the history of our community, State, and Country. Join us at the Crossroads this May!
