A Chase Stone Barn tour, archaeology exhibit and chicken booyah sale are planned for 9 a.m. Sunday, May 1, at the Chase Stone Barn, 8246 County Road S, Pulaski.
The fundraising event will benefit the preservation of the 1903 Chase Stone Barn and the development of the new Chase Stone Barn Park.
The chicken booyah will be sold by the quart or gallon. Those interested should bring their own containers for carry-home purchases, otherwise containers are available for $1 extra. Booyah will also be sold by the bowl. All booyah proceeds will benefit restoration fundraising efforts for the Chase Stone Barn Park.
Wisconsin’s State Historical Society has declared May to be Historic Preservation and Archaeology Month. During this monthlong celebration, communities throughout Wisconsin plan many local and regional events to promote historic and prehistoric places for the purposes of instilling community pride, promoting heritage tourism, and showcasing the social and economic benefits of historic preservation.
The town of Chase has asked archaeologist Bob Fay, of Old Northwest Research, to showcase the artifacts he found on the property over the past year. Fay will also educate people about the techniques he used to uncover these century-old pieces of history. Old photographs of the original farmstead from the early 1900s will also be on exhibit.
