WHO WE ARE

Mission Statement
"The purposes of this organization are exclusively educational and shall be to preserve, advance, and disseminate knowledge of the history of Portage County, Wisconsin."

In 1952, a group of Portage County residents banded together to see that the history of the county was preserved for future generations. Since then, the Portage County Historical Society has amassed a collection of over half a million documents and artifacts, plus four historic sites, that all tell different parts of our story.
