A local history museum with many interesting stories to share, the Hoard Historical Museum is like no other. Here you'll find out about Sauk warrior, Black Hawk, and the 1832 Black Hawk War.

Discover what kind of soldier young Abraham Lincoln was and learn how "Fort Atkinson" came to be. Explore the contributions of two locals of whom we're very proud: William Dempster Hoard, the father of American dairying; and Lorine Niedecker, world famous poet.
