WEST BEND (CBS 58)--It's like seeing a trifecta of rich West Bend history.  This weekend, the public is invited to visit three historic locations for free!

The 1889 Courthouse, 1886 Jailhouse, and the St. Agnes Convent & School from the mid-1800s will all be featured.  The Washington County Historical Society is hosting the event as a way of saying thank you for the community's support.

The Courthouse Museum, at 320 S. 5th Avenue, will be opened throughout the span of the entire event. Tours are self-guided. Meanwhile, docents will lead the tours of the Jailhouse Museum, also at the same address. They'll last 30 minutes, and reservations are strongly recommended.

Contact Justin Agar-Pratt for reservations (justina@thetowerheritagecenter.org or 262-335-4678.)

Finally, the St. Agnes Historic Site (1386 Fond du Lac St, West Bend, WI) will be open only Friday, August 13, from 12:00-3:00 pm. Tours are self-guided.
