Museums

Marquette County Historical Society

A turn of the century gem, the Cochrane Nelson house, built in 1903 by one of the first settlers to the new state of Wisconsin, sits on the mill pond in Westfield and home to the Marquette County Historical Society. A large collection of photos and artifacts tell the story of early Marquette County. The Riverside School from the district formed in 1853 also sits on the museum grounds. Regular hours are Wednesday 1 to 4 and by appointment and during special events.

Montello Historic Preservation Society

In 1912, J.P. Vaughn built the 2-story cement block building that would become his blacksmith shop on the first floor and hold community events on the upper level. Today it is the home of the Montello Museum and continues to host special events.
