Our Brown County {1818-2018}

Exhibit Opens: 29-May-2018
Exhibit Ends: 29-Sep-2019
Our Brown County is a celebration of 200 years of history focusing on the stories that make Brown County the place we choose to live, work, and play. Explore these stories through 50 artifacts, 50 photographs, 50 people, and 50 places that demonstrate the complex, diverse, and rich history of Brown County.

Brown County was established in 1818, becoming the first boundary lines west of the Great Lakes- that’s 30 years before Wisconsin became a state! Over the past two centuries, the residents of Brown County have left their unique mark on the landscape of Northeastern Wisconsin.
