One of the few brownstone courthouses in Wisconsin, this gem is located in scenic Washburn, Wisconsin. It's a few blocks off state highway 13. You can find other brownstone buildings in Washburn including the public library, a church and some buildings on highway 13 (Bayfield Street).

The old courthouse is a visitor center with lots of information about the Bayfield area and the Apostle Islands. The film is the most informative part of the visit here, but it is only shown on request. Just ask the Park Ranger at the desk to start the film for you. This film is a good start to your visit to the Apostle Island area. It covers the history of the Islands, the development of the area, and the activities available there.

Great place to visit. The movie there, which is shown for those that ask, is a great introduction to the Apostle islands. We thoroughly enjoyed the film. The staff is very helpful.
