Rhinelander - Spring cleaning started a little early this year and for many, summer plans are already on their mind.

The Pioneer Park Historical Complex got the jump start on getting ready for what they suspect will be a busy season.

"We're anticipating a really busy summer in the Northwoods and we're hoping people come to the museum and enjoy this gem of the Rhinelander community," says PPHC Director Kerry Bloedorn.

Bloedorn says there's plenty of exciting events on the horizon this Summer.

"We're really looking forward to having the fair back here at Pioneer Park, opening up the museum to all of the visitors here at the fair," says Bloedorn. "We also have a new exhibit, a papermill exhibit this year. We are working on an ongoing project of putting the train engine down at the railroad museum and we have hope to have that completed in the next month or so."

Community members can drop by on May 12th to help with the big spring clean up before the Complex opens on May 29th for the season.

"We do need more staff this summer so if you're interested in working at the museum you can get in touch with me via our facebook page, you can email me (rhinelanderpphc@gmail.com) or you can call the museum (715-369-5004) and I'd be happy to talk with you and let you know how to get on board," says Bloedorn.

The volunteer orientation will take place May 8th.
