Becoming Brown County: The Land and its People
Open now is a new permanent exhibit in the Brown County Historical Society’s museum, Becoming Brown County: The Land and its People. The exhibit tells the story of the early history and formation of Brown County during the periods of prehistory, early human habitation, and European settlement.
Specific topics include the geographical formation of the county and how it has affected human settlement, Native American cultures before and after European contact, the fur trade, settlement by Europeans, formation of Brown County, early towns, early industries and businesses, ethnicity and culture of inhabitants, and significant events. The exhibit will include other topics, such as transportation, early education, health care, or recreational activities as space allows. These other sections will be rotated out and replaced with new themes to keep the exhibit fresh.
The exhibit is located on the first floor of the Brown County Museum.
