A chance to take a glimpse into the past just got easier. The Wisconsin Historical Society is offering free admission to their historic sites during Mondays in June to deal with down economic times. The society's Alicia Goehring says "we know times are tough" but people are interested in learning about Wisconsin history.
Goehring says one reason history is important is to learn from our mistakes so we don't learn repeat them. She says its "not so much learning about the past but really learning ourselves, the present and things ought to be in the future."
With nearly ten historic sites statewide Goehring says there is something for every Wisconsinite within a day's trip.
