Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
The Elmbrook Historical Society is holding their 19th Annual Civil War Days Encampment at the Dousman Stagecoach Inn Museum on Saturday, May 4th and Sunday, May 5th. The historic Dousman Inn, outbuildings, and grounds are located at 1075 Pilgrim Parkway (north of Blue Mound Rd.) in Brookfield. Park for free nearby at Pilgrim Park Middle School at 1500 Pilgrim Parkway or the North Shore Bank north parking lot, 15700 W. Blue Mound Road and take the shuttle to the Inn.
The 2 day event, 10am - 4pm (both days), includes craftsmen, soldier camps, cannon fire, President Lincoln, fashion show, field hospital, and more! This year, I hope to attend the fashion show. At a past encampment, we had quite an interesting conversation about President Lincoln with the embalmer. Check the schedule for times and events.
Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for children 6 - 16, children under 5 are free. Food and beverages are available both days. There is also a silent auction.
