EPHRAIM

In the spring of 1853, 40 Norwegian Moravians, led by the Rev. Andrew Iverson, settled the area around Eagle Harbor. The hardy pioneers named their community Ephraim, a biblical term that means fruitful. Modern villagers, mindful of Ephraim's rich heritage, have preserved a good deal of its history. Many buildings still reflect the elegantly simple architecture painted white that is a hallmark of Moravian tradition.

Exhibits at the Anderson Barn Museum give visitors and residents a glimpse into a vibrant past. Anderson Dock, where tourists in the 1890s disembarked from Lake Michigan steamers, now is home to the Hardy Gallery. Area artists and special events make the Hardy a must-see on vacation itineraries.

Peninsula State Park, Wisconsin's largest and most popular state park, rests on Ephraim's west shore. Golfers playing at Peninsula's excellent course may have trouble keeping their minds on the game, so beautiful is the scenery. June means Fyr Bal, a Scandinavian tradition welcoming summer. Bonfires, great food, music and art all are part of the fun. Be sure and catch the Midsummer's Music concert- chamber music on the water. July brings a regatta with boats decked out in their finest and most colorful sails. When the ice is at its best, a community of ice-fishing shanties springs up on Eagle Harbor and cross-country skiing at Peninsula State Park becomes a passion. Ephraim truly is a village for all seasons.
