The charming little village of Ephraim sits on the Green Bay side of Wisconsin’s Door Peninsula. Driving trough town I saw a unique multi colored building out of the corner of my eye. It sits out on the dock of the harbor in town. It’s wooden siding is covered in names in every color of the rainbow.
In 1858 Aslag and Halvor Anderson bought 166 acres and established the town of Ephraim. They built a dock to serve the community and welcome visitors coming by steamship. The Anderson’s built a warehouse at the end of the dock and at some point in time boaters began signing their boats name or their name on the building when they visited Ephraim. The tradition caries on to this day and the warehouse is covered in thousands of names.
