History is our priority

The mission of the New Holstein Historical Society is to collect, preserve, conserve and restore historically significant sites, artifacts and documents that specifically relate to the New Holstein area and its citizens. We will provide educational programming and create events to enhance the current and future generations' understanding of the community and its history. We will hold property, both real and personal, in any amount; may lend, sell, lease or rent such property provided such action is consistent with the terms of gift, bequest, or other conveyance under which title was originally acquired.
