Remembering Hilgen's Spring Park

September 3 - November 16, 2014

By 1850 Cedarburg businessman Friedrich “Frederick” Hilgen had purchased 74 acres on the edge of the growing village.  He wanted land to build a home.  But more than that he had a vision for a park in the woods surrounding a series of natural springs on the eastern edge of his parcel.  


Step back in time to a lost treasure that was once part of the Cedarburg Community: Hilgen's Spring Park.  Through Schneider's historic photos, paintings, artifacts, and a recreated map of the area, this exhibition will give the viewer a historic look into this bygone era.
