The Friends of Jonathan Clark House Support Local Businesses

As early settlers Jonathan and Mary had few choices for local commerce.   For some of their needs, they relied on businesses of family and neighbors such as Mary Clark’s father Peter Turck’s saw mill.
We follow Jonathan and Mary’s lead in supporting local, neighborhood businesses. Please support the following businesses that have partnered with the Friends of the Jonathan Clark House.

 

 

Sommer’s Donation Sparks the Development of Jonathan’s Office

JCH website pics 007
Jonathan was a prominent early settler and his office is a testament to his ambitions. He was the first road supervisor for the area when there were very few roads beyond the trails forged through the woods by the Native Americans that lived and traveled through the Wisconsin Territory. Jonathan is also known for his work with early public education. In fact, in 1843, Jonathan and his father-in-law Peter Truck and their friend William Bonniwell started the first public school named “Bonniwell School, District One”.

When Don and Joan Sommer chose his office for Sommer’s Automotive naming rights they looked forward to an interpreted room depicting Jonathan’s contributions to the development of our community. Stop by the Museum to see Jonathan’s desk and the items he had for his work. The desk and future furnishings are a gift from Sandy Videkovich Brown and her husband Gary Brown of Florida. They are dedicating the furnishings to Sandy’s mother Marion Herbst Videovich whose family was one of our early settlers.

Thanks to Sommer’s Automotive and the Brown’s for supporting our growing museum.
