The Luxembourg American Cultural Society’s Roots and Leaves Museum is the showpiece of the Cultural Center. Housed in the rebuilt Mamer-Hansen Luxembourgian stone barn originally built in 1872 by Jacob Mamer, a Luxembourg immigrant who came to Ozaukee County, Wisconsin in 1846, the museum tells the story of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, as well as Luxembourg immigration.
