  • The Galloway House

The house was built by Selim Newton who was originally from New York. James Doty, the second governor of the Territory of Wisconsin, encouraged Newton to move to Fond du Lac (Doty chose the city for the city as well as the capital, Madison). Doty also convinced Edwin Galloway to move to Fond du Lac as well. Galloway moved here in 1848 and bought the house in 1868. He became the city's treasurer and mayor. The house remained in his family until 1955 when the Fond du Lac Historical Society bought it.
