Fort Winnebago Surgeons Quarters, located in Portage, Wisconsin, is owned and operated by the Wisconsin Society Daughters of the American Revolution. This site contains two historic buildings: the Surgeon’s Quarters and Garrison School. 


The Surgeons Quarters was originally the home of Francois LeRoi, a Metai (half Frenchman and half native American). He sold it to the U.S.Army in 1828 and it was used as a surgeon’s quarters for the fort and as an officers’ residence.


Garrison School is a 19th century one-room schoolhouse that was built circa 1850 and was in use until 1960.
