When: August 13, 2014
What: Tuft’s Mansion Tour
Where: Various, Neilsville, WI
The 1897 Clark County Jail Museum and Sheriff’s Residence is a unique piece of Wisconsin history. The jail was operational from 1897 to 1978 and was the home for all Clark County (WI) prisoners. It was also the home of the many sheriffs who served Clark County. They would bring their own belongings and move into the home attached to the jail. We will tour the home, two floors of jail cells, and the third floor, which housed women and children who were confined at the jail. From there we head over to the Tufts Mansion Museum for a tour of the mansion that was built in 1879. In 1961, the Tuft family became the owners and began extensive remodeling on the building. These are both walking tours, so come prepared!
The next stop is at Pavilion Cheese and Gifts in Neilsville, where you will find Wisconsin cheese, sausage, honey, maple syrup, cranberry products and gourmet specialty items. From there we will head to Marshfield for lunch at the Blue Heron Brewpub. Then get ready for a special experience at Jurustic Park, where Clyde Wynia has created some incredible steel structures, from tiny dogs and frogs, to larger than life dragons, to life-sized dinosaurs! And not to be outdone, Clyde’s wife Nancy will show us her own creations in yarn spinning and glass bead making.
