La Crosse County Historical Society is so much more than the artifacts that we hold!

LCHS owns and operates Historic Hixon House Museum and curates exhibits at Riverside Museum. LCHS offices also serve as collections storage. Throughout the year more events and programming strive to Bring History to Life for the La Crosse Region! LCHS has something planned for every history enthusiast.
