Latest Happenings At The Belgian Heritage Center

Belgian Fore Mothers

Belgian Fore Mothers

Due to the wonderful response, BHC is extending our Women's History month gallery through Mother's Day.  We are featuring the contributions women have made over the generations in our Belgian communities.  The FEATURED tab on this website includes:

 

  - video of Arlene Dechamps Jadin talking about the hard work women did in the "old days" in English and Walloon

 

  - photos of women doing everything from housework to farm work

 

  - inspiring stories and photos of our Belgian Fore Mothers shared by their friends and family

 

Enjoy!

BHC Master Plan

BHC Master Plan

BHC recently completed a Master Planning project funded by a grant from the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation (GGBCF). We engaged Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc. of Appleton to lead the effort. The Master Plan addresses improved visitor access to all buildings and campus features, expanded off road parking and a layout for a new, future building to support community events. The site plan and development concepts are detailed in a narrative report with maps and illustrations, standards and guidelines for historic preservation and a 45 minute video with detailed instructions for maintaining the historic aesthetics of our campus while safely hosting visitors of all ages. Thanks to GGBAF, Hoffman and Pat Del Ponte for supporting this important project.
