Take a trip through Wisconsin’s past this summer. At Old World Wisconsin, learn about immigrants and settlers working hard to build new lives and our state. Savor the luxury of a Chicago brewer’s “summer cottage” on Lake Geneva at Black Point Estate. Or head back to school and experience what it was like to be a pupil in a one-room schoolhouse at Reed School in Neillsville.

The Wisconsin Historical Museum in Madison features exhibits on everything from Native American cultures to the state’s lively political history. And where else but Wisconsin could one find a state historic site that features a big top circus? The state Historical Society has information on all of the sites.
