Celebrating the Rich History of Rhinelander

Rhinelander Historical Society

Throughout its long history, our members have been active in preserving historic buildings, engaging the community in exciting and interactive events, and stimulating interest in the complex multi-cultural heritage of the Rhinelander area.

Today the Society is as vital as ever. Our projects include advocacy for historical preservation, educational outreach, publications, operation of a historic house museum, and as a historical resource to the community.

The all-volunteer group receives no funding from the City, County or State, so it is totally reliant on memberships and donations.
