Stonefield is one of the nicest and well cared for historic sites around. Always friendly and helpful people working there and running the place. And the Safe & Spooky Halloween every year is a fantastic event for all ages. None like it around! :)

We visited the day after Labor Day so it was virtually empty except for the employees. This was great for us. We received private tours for the village butcher/store, farmhouse and Governor Dewey Mansion. A tour is the only way to get into the farmhouse and mansion. I think the butcher/store is generally open. There are listed times for the tours.

There is a lot to see if you like life in the late 1800's. There is the Barn which has a lot of farm implements, then an outdoor area with historic implements and a museum(we didn't go into this), the village with all sorts of stores and school, and the Governor Nelson Dewey home. The stores were open for viewing. A few were: photography shop, millinery store, bar, funeral parlor and furntiure making, broom making, print shop, etc. The Dewey Mansion is a short walk across the street. There is also a covered barn that you walk through to get from the farm to the village.

In the gift shop/entrance, there are restrooms, gifts, candy, drinks and water. There were also restrooms in one of the stores in the village.

After leaving here we decided to take the Cassville Ferry across to the Iowa side instead of driving. I think it cost $15 for us and our car. It only took about 10 or 15 minutes and was worth it for us to experience it.

Went here to see governor Dewey 's home and his original farm. a village and agriculture museum were later built. it is surrounded by a stone fence that was built by hand. It is by the Mississippi river and one of the most beautiful hidden treasures nestled in the hills of sw Wisconsin. A treasure to share with your spouse and kids. homemade rootbeer, brooms, ice cream, & great gift shop. Pack a picnic and enjoy the nostalgia!!!
