Welcome to Winneconne Historical Society’s webpage.
We are a privately funded, non-profit organization dedicated to educating, researching and preserving the history of Winneconne. The society was chartered in 1962 by a group of residents who shared an interest in preserving and sharing the history of the surrounding area and to collecting and exhibiting objects and documents from its past.
The Winneconne Historical Society also operates the museum complex located on West Main Street in Winneconne and is open on Sunday afternoons in the summer. It is operated by a volunteer board of directors. There are no paid staff. The board develops and monitors a budget and establishes yearly goals, while operating the museums. Other volunteers assist with visitors, computer work, fund raising, cleaning and organizing.
