The Stahl-Conrad Homestead recently elected new officers. They are Betty Braun, Michael Jedrzejewski, Delene Hanson, and Bette Arey.
The Homestead is a nonprofit historical society dedicated to preserving the Homestead as a remnant of a bygone lifestyle. Its mission is to create a museum focused on transitions in the land in Hales Corners and its environs from presettlement into the future.
The current exhibit in the farmhouse, titled Making a Living on the Land, features the agricultural history of Hales Corners and the surrounding area. It uses numerous artifacts donated by Lloyd Conrad and other members and friends of the Homestead. The exhibit recalls the early days of the village, a time when Hales Corners was a farm community that supplied the growing city of Milwaukee.
The exhibit is open at no charge during the farmers market, 9724 W. Forest Home Ave., which is scheduled 8:a.m. to 12 noon, October 8 and 22. Civic groups can arrange other times by calling Bette at (414) 425-5572.
