A couple of vintage photos courtesy the Kewaskum Historical Society as sports fans across Washington County celebrate Opening Day. The Milwaukee Brewers host the San Francisco Giants at Miller Park.

 

On a history note the top photo is from 1929 and features Kewaskum High School vs Lomira High School.

The photo was taken at the site of the current KES building we believe. The hill in the background is Seefeldts hill off of Werner Dr and Riverview Dr./Hwy S. The houses are on Bilgo Lane.
