Northern Wisconsin Heritage Council

The Eagle River Historical Society led the creation of the Northern History Caucus in 2017.  Members include all the Northwoods affiliates of the Wisconsin Historical Society, almost 40 local history societies.  In 2022 members agreed to change the name to the Northern Wisconsin Heritage Council and apply for non-profit status for the organization.

The NWHC is now creating a website that will link to heritage tours, events and information across the Northwoods of Wisconsin.  New organizations have joined the group, making it more effective as a collaborative power across multiple counties.  If your heritage group has a presence in northern Wisconsin, consider becoming a part of this growing organization.
