Moonshine in the Northwoods

Wednesday, May 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us at 1 p.m. on May 31st at the MAC and discover how moonshine operations changed and impacted several Northwoods’ communities. During Prohibition, visitors and residents sought sanctuary from Volstead Act enforcement in remote northern towns and villages. Under the cover of forests, streams and lakes, even Al Capone sampled the products of area moonshiners while enjoying “gangster holidays” in Winchester.

Local historian Jim Bokern will share new photos, documents, research and stories that are guaranteed to capture your imagination and reveal exciting historic insights.
