"The Hixon House is a beautiful look back in time at an authentic Victorian home. The Hixon House has approximately 90% of its original furnishings, making it unusual among historic houses. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is owned by the LaCrosse County Historical Society. Begun in 1859 by lumber baron Gideon Hixon, this Italianate house features beautiful woodwork and lavish interior decoration.

 "His wife, Ellen, decorated the Hixon House in the Aesthetic fashion, and it has been preserved much as it was after its last remodeling and redecoration around the 1900's. Phase One of the restoration was finished in 2005. The house contains one of the few remaining "Turkish Nooks" in the country, a space designed to evoke an oriental atmosphere. Beautiful woodwork, original furnishings, and charming gardens make the tour a truly enjoyable experience for young and old alike."
