Manitowoc County Historical Society
Established in 1906, the Manitowoc County Historical Society is one oldest societies in the state and one of the first to be affiliated with the State History Society of Wisconsin. Nestled in the scenic rolling Ice Age Kettle Moraine countryside of Eastern Wisconsin, the Manitowoc County Historical Society is a museum of living history. Feel the heat from the blacksmith's forge, take part in one-room school lessons, and find your ancestor's name in our archives. This 60-acre interpretive museum of local history features a Welcome Center with local history exhibits and research services and the outdoor Pinecrest Historical Village - a collection of over 25 historic buildings with period furnishings from Manitowoc County's early settlers.
