In order to ensure the safety and comfort of our visitors, we have moved our 2020 opening day to June 6, and we have cancelled our June 6 Wisconsin Territory Day event. Please be aware that as news continues to develop about the coronavirus, we may adjust our schedule and event calendar further. The latest updates will be posted to this website as well as our Facebook page.
History in the Heart of Wisconsin
Fort Winnebago Surgeons Quarters is a nationally-registered historic site and museum located in Portage, Wisconsin, and owned and operated by the Wisconsin Society Daughters of the American Revolution. The site features two historic buildings: the Surgeons Quarters, where the U.S. Army Surgeons of Fort Winnebago resided from 1834 to 1854, and the Garrison School, a one-room schoolhouse that served the local population from 1850 to 1960. Each is stocked with early 19th century artifacts and documents, including medical equipment, books, furniture, blacksmith items, clocks, crockery, glassware, children's toys, and more. We are open for tours May through October each year. Come visit us soon! Plan your next visit here.
"Fascinating place! I went with a friend who... especially enjoyed the tools from a physician of that time, the history, and the one room schoolhouse that was moved to that site."
