Explore the Era of the One-Room Schoolhouse 

You don’t have to walk uphill, both ways, to explore the history of Wisconsin schoolhouses at Reed School. Take a seat at your desk and journey through the era of the one-room schoolhouse, where generations of rural Wisconsin children came of age in the 6,000 one-room schools that once dotted the landscape of the state.

April 29th is National Historic Marker Day! Did you know that Wisconsin has almost 600 Official State Historical Markers, with more being added every year? This service-oriented event was created by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation with the goal of bringing people and communities together to maintain their historical markers by cleaning them and providing an opportunity to celebrate and preserve history. We encourage you to celebrate and share your National Historic Marker Day photos with us.

Watch this step-by-step video guide about how to properly clean historic markers in preparation for National Historic Marker Day: wihist.org/3vszrIr

April is Hmong Heritage Month!

We are honoring Wisconsin’s vibrant Hmong community and the determination of those who overcame adversity as they fled war-torn Southeast Asia in the wake of the Vietnam War to establish a new life in Wisconsin.

Together, this community has built support systems to preserve their traditions and to help one another as they enrolled in schools, started businesses, and strove for independence. While their shared experience and history of perilous journeys, refugee camps, and discrimination will never be forgotten, these tragedies do not define them.

The Hmong story is a story of survival and hope as they become an important part of Wisconsin communities. Celebrate by exploring fascinating stories of Hmong 𝙫𝙞𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨, 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙢𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙧𝙨, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙮𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙧𝙨 with ties to Wisconsin.
