South Wood County Historical Museum

540 Third Street South
Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54494


Our building was erected in 1907 by architect Anton Billmeyer for Issac P. Witter. The grounds initially included tennis courts, a fountain, fish pond, and floral gardens extending to the banks of the river. The property was given to the city in 1947 and served as the T.B. Scott Library for a number of years. In 1970, it became The South Wood County Historical Museum under the direction of the South Wood County Historical Corporation.
