House Full of History

May 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Marathon County Historical Society is hosting our House Full of
History open house event. We’re throwing open the doors of several
storage areas and letting you in to take a look. You’ll see how our
artifact curators and archivists work diligently to collect, preserve,
and store the objects entrusted to the historical society. You’ll have
the opportunity to see what’s behind the locked doors, ask questions
about what our staff does, see what we collect, and more.
The history of a community is often told by the things that are left
behind. Since the 1950s, the Marathon County Historical Society has
been collecting these “things”. As Wausau celebrates the 150th
anniversary of receiving their city charter, the work of the historical
society is even more important.
No matter your age (kids are welcome!) you’ll enjoy this
behind-the-scenes look at what the historical society collects and how
we preserve the history of Marathon County and the people who called
this home.
For more information, please contact the Marathon County Historical
Society at (715) 842-5750 or visit
