Yawkey House Museum

 View Slide Show | Watch Our Video

Indulge your sense of wonder with a guided tour of the historic Yawkey House Museum.  Explore and learn about the elegant house built in 1901 as you travel back in time to a home that showcases history, architecture and furnishings from an era vital to the growth of Wisconsin.

Stunning details and a commitment to quality are evident in both the interior and exterior of the Yawkey House Museum.  The exterior showcases Classical Revival architecture with stately lines and original decorative element, and also includes a beautiful outdoor sunken garden with a carriage house unique to the needs of the early twentieth century.  Inside, experience the style and warmth of Arts and Crafts influenced design with built in cabinetry and extraordinary stained glass features.  

The home is also a chance to learn about the history of Marathon County.  Cyrus, Alice and beloved daughter Leigh Yawkey were major influences in the local logging and paper business, art and other civic areas.
