The Stories We Tell

In the heart of downtown Waupun stands a 1904 Carnegie Library building.  Practically untouched by time, this charming example of Elizabethan Revival architecture serves as the Waupun Heritage Museum.  Be sure to visit all-new exhibits and get a tour of Waupun's rich history!

Reconnect With Nature

The Horicon National Wildlife Refuge is truly a breathtaking experience!  Before hitting the trails, be sure to visit

Marsh Haven Nature Center

and

Friends of Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor Center.  There, you can get acquainted with all the furry and feathered friends who call the marsh home.  The trails are beautiful year-round, with the autumn colors usually peaking in mid-October!
