About the Archive

Our mission at Hawks Inn Historical Society is to teach and preserve history of the Delafield area. We are developing a collection that reflects our community.  To date, we are focusing on visual items of interest.

The Visual Materials Collection began in 2014 as a project to organize materials (photographs, etc.) that were donated to the Historical Society.  Since then, the number of materials and topics have expanded greatly and now includes the collections below.

  • Margaret Zerwekh Postcard Collection
  • Images
  • Newspaper Clippings
  • Documents (Diaries/Journals)
  • Maps
  • Publications
  • Other

Through monies received from a Wisconsin Humanities Recovery Grant in 2021, the Delafield History Center has begun digitizing materials in our archives, beginning with the Margaret Zerwekh Postcard Collection. We will add more as time goes on.

Support the Archive

As the Hawks Inn Historical Society is a 501c3 organization and completely volunteer-run, we respectfully request a donation when you use photos from our collections.  Please give credit to Hawks Inn Historical Society when you use them.

Donations are greatly appreciated as they help us to maintain and expand the collection.
