The Hidden Castle In Wisconsin That Almost No One Knows About

The History Museum at the Castle in Appleton is one of those spots that locals seem to know about, but everyone else is in the dark on. This stunning building from the 1920’s used to be a Masonic temple and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Now it’s a very cool museum with history of the Fox Valley dating back to before Wisconsin was a state.

Please note, the History Museum at the Castle is temporarily closed.
