Historic Stone Stable
Woodworker Dale Carson (right) and
Whitewater Historical Society President Alan Marshall (left) examine the new
doors and wrought iron hardware on the Stone Stable.
Stone Stable with doors closed!
If you've passed by the Stone Stable on Whitewater
Street recently, you may have noticed its new front door. Dale Carson of
Woodworks of LaGrange, recently replaced the plywood blank that filled the
space after the former door was irreparably damaged last year, with a
period-appropriate, handmade double-door. Dale built the door in his workshop
in LaGrange and worked closely with Darold Rhinedollar, a blacksmith at Old
World Wisconsin, who designed and fabricated the new wrought iron hinges and
fastening hardware. The former single door on the stable was not original to
the structure and research revealed a double-door to be more consistent with
the style of the building. The project was jointly funded by the Society and
the City of Whitewater. The City of Whitewater owns the Stone Stable and leases
it to the Society.
The Depot Museum
will be open on Monday, July 4th, 8:30AM-4PM! Please stop by and support a

(June 18) UWW breaks
ground on Mary Poppe Chrisman Success Center
The 18,390 square-foot three-story
addition, which broke ground in May 2016 and is expected to open in fall 2017,

This addition to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater
campus has been set in motion, thanks to a generous donation from an alumnus,
Byron R. "Chris" Chrisman, in honor of his late wife, Mary Poppe Chrisman.
Chris, who received a B.S. in business in 1959, was inspired to make
the gift in memory of Mary, who graduated in 1957 with a B.S. in mathematics.
She excelled on campus and went on to teach math at the high school level
before joining the National Bureau of Standards and National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration as a computer programmer.
motivation for wanting the building named after Mary was that she loved
teaching," Chris said. "And she very much appreciated her experience at
Wisconsin State College-Whitewater, as it was called at the time."
Mary Poppe Chrisman Success Center will house the UW-Whitewater Academic
Support Center, serving thousands of students with tutorial and supplemental
instruction and offering employment opportunities to hundreds of qualified
learning assistants, or tutors.

SATURDAY - July 16th,
10:00am, Natureland Park, Whitewater - The Kettle Moraine Land Trust (KMLT), a
non-profit working in Walworth County, is partnering with the Whitewater
Community Foundation and Feeding Walworth County to offer individuals an
opportunity to explore nature and help local food pantries.
Hunger is not limited to a single demographic or geographic
region, nor is it a problem for only the homeless or poor. The summer months
are a difficult time for food banks and pantries. During the school year, many
children get the majority of their daily calories from free or reduced price
school lunches. In Walworth County elementary schools, 44% of the students take
advantage of free or reduced lunches. When school is out of session, these same
children need food and nourishment and many times these families turn to food
pantries. According the United States Department of Agriculture, many formerly
middle-class families have been forced to turn to their local food banks and
food pantries for help. In the summer, food pantries need to keep their shelves
stocked and this series of hikes will help do that. Contrary to popular belief,
many people served by America's food banks have at least one working adult in
their household. Many others are too old or too young to work. Children and the
elderly are most at risk for food insecurity.
