My Husband and I went into the Stephenson Island Museum and as Rick was looking around he noticed a framed map about what are trying to learn of the home we bought 12 years ago. So we'll be going back and check on this. If I recall it was busy the day that we went in. Nice people and helping... More

There are so many unusual things in this museum and out buildings. Totally immersed in the culture of the area. Every type of job and feature of living is touched on from logging camps to the Indians in the area. Would definitely recommend planning a stay of at least 1 to 2 hrs to do it justice. I wish we...

We were blown away by the size and quality of displays at this sort of hidden treasure of a museum! The museum was staffed by a couple of "more experienced" ladies and a young student. We asked for a guided tour and the ladies recommended the student who had obviously studied the history and displays extensively. We received an outstanding... More

This was a bit of American history I would recommend to anyone. This was hard, back breaking work and I have nothing but respect for the men who did it. Looking at all the wide open saws they used, and so many hand tools, that was real work. And, part of our precious American heritage.

Nice island to enjoy the river, fishing, picnics, Frisbee, etc. Bring a blanket on a winter day. The area sports a beautiful spring that grows into a fantastic summer with dozens of popular activities happening consecutively.

When you first arrive the appearance is nice and not a huge building. Inside is a surprisingly appealing and interesting. A place you should not pass up.

What can be more charming than a quiet island in the middle of the river off a busy interstate bridge in a small downtown? Especially when the island includes a log-cabin museum chock full of artifacts that tell the story of a busy lumber town in the late 1800s? Probably not much. The museum, operated by the local historical society,... More
