In 1954, Leigh Yawkey Woodson and her daughters donated the home of her late parents, lumberman Cyrus C. Yawkey and Alice Richardson Yawkey, to the Historical Society. The house was built in 1900 in the Classical Revival style and later remodeled in the Prairie School style and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. The Yawkey House has been renovated to its original state with an authentically furnished music room, dining room, and parlor which give a taste of gracious living of a bygone era. The formal gardens displaying a colorful array of native wildflowers, perennials, annuals, and herbs and carriage house are open throughout the summer. The home of A.P. Woodson and Leigh Yawkey Woodson, located across the street at 410 McIndoe Street was built in 1914 and designed by Prairie School architect, George W. Maher. The Woodson House contains the Historical Society’s library, archives, administrative offices, artifact storage, and the educational exhibit area. $2.00 donation.

The Museum's permanent collection is known for its focus on nature with historic and contemporary paintings, sculptures, and works on paper that focus on birds.

The museum building itself is impressive.

  • The Wausau Depot

    720 Grant Street
    Interior not open to the public. When most people think of Wausau, they probably envision the railroad depot created by Wausau Insurance Companies for a corporate logo. They can't find the depot pictured in the ads because it was drawn by an artist combining one depot building with the view of the city skyline from another depot. The depot featured in the logo still stands at 720 Grant Street. After Wausau Insurance Companies bought the building in 1977, a faithful reproduction was constructed at its corporate headquarters (Bridge Street exit of US Highway 51) for advertising purposes and the Grant Street depot was donated to the Boy Scouts. The Washington Street depot (Washington Street at the Wisconsin River) with the city backdrop depicted in the logo has recently been restored and used as office space.

    Nothing but the freshest ingredients, organically and locally grown whenever possible. No 'canned' sauces or cheap ingredients such as 'powdered' spices or 'imitation' herbs. to provide you with the best dining experience possible and we believe this starts with fresh wholesome foods. In 2003 we completed a $500,000 expansion to include a 2nd dining room, an outdoor dining area and a new kitchen. The staff strives to create a warm, friendly, relaxed and cozy atmosphere and we consider ourselves as a gathering place among friends. The architecture is an ecclectic blend of the old and new with a touch of northwoods flair.
