You're invited to get out Saturday, May 21 for Open House Racine County (OHRC), a free day-long celebration of interesting places, fascinating architecture, local history and more.
More than 40 OHRC sites are scattered throughout the county. You'll stroll the beautiful Wind Point Lighthouse grounds, visit the renowned Racine Art Museum (RAM) and RAM's Chas. A. Wustum Museum of Fine Arts or get a taste of history in Racine, Caledonia or Burlington.
If architecture interests you, the internationally famous Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings at the SC Johnson campus in Racine and the Wingspread home in Wind Point will be open by appointment. You'll also have opportunities to see several historic and architecturally significant area churches.
You'll meet friendly alpacas, tour fire stations and get rare, inside looks at the private offices of Racine's city mayor and the Racine County executive.
