My wife and I visited on a warm afternoon in the middle of the summer. There is a lot to see and learn among the grounds of Stonefield and across the road at the former governors dilapidated mansion. Both of the staff we came in contact with were very much less hospitable than we are used to while traveling. The... More

My husband and I visited Stonefield thinking it was one house to see. We were pleasantly surprised to find 4 distinct areas to tour. We spent almost 3 hours listening to 3 presentations by the tour guide and wandering in and out of the other buildings on the property. There are many interesting objects from the mid-late 1800's in each... More

I love this little village. We have come many times in the past and I like to see the changes every time we come back. We found a cat years ago while we were touring this place so it holds a special place for us. The only thing is I miss having someone work at the ice cream counter. One... More

Stonefield is set up with a recreated farm (farmhouse, windmill, barn, honey house, and even a couple sheep and some chickens) and a recreated village (lots of stores, church, school. saloon, creamery, houses, train depot) atmosphere. The buildings and the furniture/decor inside of them are unique compared to some other places that I have toured. There is also an area... More

The farmstead and Agricultural museum was very interesting with tons of machinery and history. The town settlement really felt like you were a part of it. You can go into the buildings and see the furniture, tools, and accessories of the times. The blacksmith, fire station, jail, church, school, doctor's office, etc... We had a 6 year old to teenagers... More

Really enjoyed our visit to Stonefield. Our tour guide Mary was great and since we were visiting after the summer rush we were able to ask questions and get answers very easily. Only wish we would have had a little more time to see everything. With my husband being a retired farmer, he really enjoyed the agricultural displays. Part of... More

Stopped in for the Great River Road Festival event, it was like stepping back in time loved the Sorghum molasses exhibition along with all the other demonstrations of early 1900's life style. The farm machinery museum is also very interesting. When traveling the Great River Road in this area this is a must visit.

Having always been a fan of museums I found this place fascinating. The first part of the property displayed old machinery and history. Not so interesting to me. But the left side of the property was a set up city/village. Complete with blacksmith shop, jail and ice creme shop. Since we were there with our three children they had a... More

The woman at the visitor center was very helpful as to all Stonefield has to offer. While we waited for our tour of the Nelson Dewey house, we checked out the charming gift shop with well-priced and appropriate wares. Our guide for the house was knowledgeable about both the house itself, its history, and its occupants. We could have stayed... More

Stonefield is a restored 1800's town that aims to show how everyday life was lived in that era. It is a popular elementary school field trip stop. Most of the buildings are open for visitors to walk through on their own, but three - the mansion, the farmhouse, and the store - are available only when a docent is giving... More

Thank you for your comments, Stonefield Historic Site is made up of four parts: the home site of Nelson Dewey the first governor of Wisconsin, a 1900 farmstead, a 1900 village and the Wisconsin State Agricultural Museum. Besides the guided tours there is also a very informative audio tour that provides information about all of the buildings in the village.... More
