The Dubuque County Historical Society’s time-honored Independence Day celebration returns to the Mathias Ham Historic Site on the Fourth of July. Visitors can tour the rooms of the stately Ham House, experience frontier life at the Arriandeau Log House and Humke one-room school, listen to live music, participate in colonial activities, and hear the thunder of cannon fire.

This year’s celebration will include traditional cakes and ice cream treats as well as delicious picnic food favorites such as brats, hot dogs, pulled pork, chips, soda, and lemonade available for purchase. The Ice Cream Social will also feature living history demonstrations and activities for children including Victorian games and crafts.
