WI Hometown Stories showing at Eau Claire State Theatre

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Many will agree that Eau Claire has some rich history, and a special event is aimed to prove it.

Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) is showing a series of films, all about Eau Claire Friday night at the State Theatre starting at 7:30. They’re for WPT’s Wisconsin Hometown Stories, which are focused on telling the state’s history, one town at a time, and they’re all created in partnership with people from those communities. 

WPT officials said these stories are ingrained in local history, something everyone in Eau Claire should find interesting.

"This is their history, that they have family connections. Stories like the Uniroyal Plant, stories like ski jumping, these are their family’s stories, and as you see the show, you’ll see how those stories are connected to the history of our state and connected to the history of our country," said Jon Miskowski, the director of television for WPT. "Really important things have happened here, and this is a great celebration and a remembrance, and preserving those stories for the community."

If you are unable to make it to the free showing at the State Theatre, WPT will be showing the Hometown Stories on television. You can find out more by clicking here.
