Friends of MKI Annual Meeting on Saturday, May 7, in Racine

Join the Friends of the Max Kade Institute on Saturday, May 7, for an exciting day tracing the steps of one of South-East Wisconsin’s most illustrious German-speaking immigrants: Ernst Klinkert. We will take a guided tour of the “Klinkert Roadhouse,” one of Klinkert’s impressive German-style tavern buildings, and the “Klinkert Barn,” a magnificent Kentucky blue-grass-style stable for his prized race horses.  Afterwards, we will hold our annual meeting and dinner at the Reefpoint Brew House, followed by a presentation by Art & Architectural Historian Pippin Michelli on “Ernst Klinkert and His World: A German Immigrant Builder and Brewer in Racine, Wisconsin.
