Just a Farmer’s Daughter is a collection of almost seventy short stories recalling life on the last operational family farm in the Village of Sister Bay, Wisconsin. The book covers 80+ years of history, beginning with Melvin Kramer purchasing the farm in 1930, and ending with the farewell party attended by remaining family members when the property was listed for sale. The author, Kathy Springer, was a granddaughter of Melvin Kramer.
For a glimpse of what it was like growing up on a small farm in a little village, to experiencing the learning curve of moving out on her own into the big world, Kathy invites you to share in the adventures.
Kathy’s earliest ancestors arrived in Door County in the 1870s and 1880s, and they farmed and fished to provide for their families. Her great, great grandparents owned the harbor site that is now the Sister Bay Marina.
The book is published by the Sister Bay Historical Society (SBHS), and Kathy has generously donated all proceeds from the sale to SBHS to support our mission of preserving and sharing local history.
The book can be purchased at all Sister Bay Historical Society programs, starting with a special book signing event open to the public on Wednesday, June 28, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. (Koessl Barn, at Corner of the Past).
