Operated by the Milwaukee County Historical Society, Trimborn is a Civil War-era historic site boasting nine structures in their original locations, including four lime kilns, a Cream City brick farmhouse, and one of the largest stone barns in Wisconsin. Trimborn is also adjacent to the Jeremiah Curtin House, an 1840s Irish immigrant stone cottage. The Arts and Craft Show features booths throughout the grounds and inside the historic buildings, and offers the area's best representation of arts and crafts. Exhibitors are encouraged to donate one item to the Main Tent Raffle. There will be food vendors, a live entertainment, childrens' activities area, and spouse waiting area.
