Galloway House and Village

The centerpiece of the Historic Village District. Privately owned, historically designated homes make up the neighborhood where the Galloways lived. 

Taking over 30 years to complete, the House is a showpiece of gracious living and entertaining, with practical touches that remind us of the working farm that raised three generations of a fun-loving family. 

The village surrounding the 30-room Galloway House includes 25 unique buildings from a bygone era, each serving as a mini museum celebrating Wisconsin commerce and lifestyle of the 1800s. 

The Blakely Museum houses one of the finest collections of native artifacts and distinctive pieces through hundreds of years of life-changing history. 

The Galloway House and Village offers a self-guided walking tour of the Village. Guests can peruse the gift shop, where they will find books by local authors, old fashion treats, and trinkets to remember the visit.

Open Memorial Day-Labor Day Wed-Sat 11am-4pm, Sun 1-4pm. Thornton Library open Tues and Thurs 11am-4pm, Mar-Dec, by appointment only in Jan and Feb.
