Hello Forest County residents!
If you like the information you receive from my blog you are going to love the Forest County Genealogical and Historical Society Museum which opens Monday June 21st. The museum is located at 103 W Jackson St, Crandon, WI and the hours are Monday-Friday 11 am-3 pm and Saturday 10 am- 4 pm. The museum is a historic house display that includes a kitchen, dining room, and living room decorated like a typical Forest County home in the 1920’s. There is also an exhibit of a school room and a room filled with temporary displays featuring prominent aspects of the county’s history such as logging, farming, and local businesses. There are so many historic gems that can not be seen any where else such as the photos featured below from the town of Argonne in 1912. I encourage everyone to visit and learn more about their local history because knowing your roots often enlightens the present.
