Madison Wisconsin State Journal (Newspaper) - May 23, 1975, Madison, Wisconsin V PAGE 2 SECTION 4 WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL FRIDAY MAY 23 1975 Old WorldPark on Schedule EAGLE AP Old World Wisconsin is on schedule rushing toward a rendezvous with 19th century ancestry The State Historical Society says its 570 acre project conceived as an outdoor museum to accommodate 100000 tourists annually when it is completed years from now has enough mileage to meet a 1976 openingday commitment to the nations bicentennial celebration Authentic pioneer buildings from throughout the state are being relocated on the Kettle Moraine State Forest tract in an ambitious portrayal of the architectural heritage transplanted in Wisconsin by farming immigrants be they German Swiss Bohemian Polish or English John W Winn a society spokesman said construction remains faithful to the timeta ble despite problems that have challenged the states determination to simulate the life style of its citizens a century ago Hurdles include inflations pressures on costs which have increased the estimated price tag from in to million now Project director William Applegate said donations have produced only The legislature is being asked for funds to hire 15 more workmen and the US Bicen tennial Commission says it cannot subsidize memorial parks But the state reached accord last year with Waukesha County residents who had fought the project on grounds it would convert the quiet neighborhood into a neonilluminated tourist trap and civic groups are volunteer ing enough native Wisconsin material to overcome the restrictions of a decision to reject any building or antique furnishing that is not 100 per cent Wisconsin original Offers of simulated buildings from Ger many and Michigan have rejected Yet abandoned farms in Wisconsin have produced enough material already for 11 rebuilt structures Other disassembled buildings have been shipped to the site and are waiting reas sembly and Winn said more are waiting shipment Visitors are being discouraged this war preventing interference with the busy work agenda which includes development this summer of trails a visitor center and a 200 car parking lot Contributions include a Knights of Colum bus fundraising campaign to ship an 1839 woodframe church from Milwaukee and oldfashioned tuftedquilt bed spreads hand stitched by a Menomonee Falls womens club Workmen have created a farmstead from structures built in Bayfield County by Fin nish immigrants It comprises a barn sauna and other buildings including a home whose walls still wear pieces of Finnishlanguage newspapers which originally served as wallpaper Even a row of gnarled stumps that once served as a farm fence has been reas sembled A halftimbered twostory building from Washington County with Pomeranian heri tage has been restored with 700 handhewn wooden pegs to join the beams BjarneO Breilid a Norway native serving as project superintendent expresses ad miration for the Germanic precision evident in an 1835 house relocated from Cedarburg Its builder numbered virtually every beam with carved Roman numerals Breilid said researchers have uncovered an especially interesting fact that contrasts with Hollywoods idea of weatherworn grayhaired pioneers Diaries indicate many of Wisconsins homesteading settlers were teenagers he said Plans call for continued additions over the years even after gates have been opened to tourists in time for the Fourth of July 1976 On the immediate list are a Norwegian village settlement including a oneroom school house and a farmstead from Barren County The society is asking for contributors to poke through attics and forgotten farm sheds in search of compatible antiques The guideline is authenticity 3 Inmates Become

benefits can be taken away Im doing this for hie Burrell said Burrell and Cydzik look like other reformatory inmates in their prison garb but have ex tensive vocabularies They talk of the outside world as a place of which they are in constant touch These are probably three of the most stable men Ive seen in a long time Warden Elmer 0 Cady said I think the higher education has given them a broader perspective than you see in most men who are incarcerat ed Professors come to the institu tion to give freshman and sophomore courses tomany in mates and a number have con tinued their courses on campus after finishing their sentences After Burrell Glass and Cyd zik completed their underclass work they realized they desired more For one thing the ex posure to higher learning turned them on
