Event Description

The Mathias Ham Historic Site is celebrating Independence Day this year with the Audrey Hammer 4th of July Ice Cream Social, and guests are invited to attend the celebration from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 4th.

Visitors can enjoy live music by The Americana Band and purchase picnic foods, cakes, and ice cream. Victorian games will be held in the yard for children including sack races, horse shoes, graces, and more. Crafts will also take place as well throughout the day.

Free tours of the historic Ham House, the Humke one-room school, the replica lead mine, and the Arriandeau Log House will be happening, with live demonstrations and thunderous cannon fire adding to the experience of Independence Day.

Free-will donations will be accepted with proceeds benefitting the Mathias Ham Historic Site, a property of the Dubuque County Historical Society.

Special thanks to this year’s in-kind sponsors, Prairie Farms and the Americana Band, for providing the ice cream and music for the event, and Tracy & Fred Fischer for also sponsoring the event.
