I took this tour in December as a Christmas tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable of the house and activities of that era. The furniture and house hold items were interesting to learn about. They also have a working blacksmiths shop in the back shed and they do demonstrations as well

Seeing the Grignon Mansion at Kaukauna, WI was a comfortable and educational experience and took us back to another time in history. The time slipped away as we enjoyed learning about life in the 1800's. We were lucky enough to be there on a day when they provided home-made ice cream, and a working blacksmith shop was operating. It was... More

The Grignon Mansion has always had a soft spot in my heart during my life. My very first experience with Civil War reenactments was at this mansion, they also taught me about the fur trade and where the saying "don't let the bed bugs bite" came from. I have taken classes to learn crafts (tatting). It is amazing to see... More

Stopped in to see the Rose blacksmith shop located on this historic property. It is fortunate that this place has a reliable historic tradesman volunteers to provide public history demonstrations on lost arts.

Our tour guide Emma was very good with her descriptions of the items in the house. All the items and decor are restored to the time period of the house when built. Emma's little helper Chloe was great with demonstrating some of the exhibits too. It was good to see the younger people showing interest in showing the History of... More

Run by a group of volunteers, visit and learn about this historical home and see artifacts from the mid 1800s when it was built.

Many original artifacts are displayed in the building. The building now owned by the City of Kaukauna is open to the public on weekends, Saturday and Sunday from Noon - 4... More

I called Outagamie County Historical Society, they did not return a call or an email. All looks in great repair, paint intact, no broken windows, grass mown. But gardens and orchard untended, and there was no way to get inside. I'll try again this summer.
