Welcome to the Governor William H. Upham House

Constructed in 1880, the Governor W.H. Upham House is listed in the Local, State, and National Register of Historic Places  and serves as the center for the North Wood County Historical Society exhibits, activities, and local history research.

Home of former Wisconsin Governor William Henry Upham, the house represents mid-Victorian, Italianate architecture. Furnishings date from the late 1880s to 1920s and include a dining room set and three bedroom sets all manufactured by the Upham Manufacturing Company.

The Heritage Rose Garden has thirty historical rose plants, some of which date back to the year 200 at the time of the Roman Empire. With its bower-seated walkways, the arbor has been stylishly designed to complement the Victorian influence of the Upham house.

The Governor Upham House is open year-round for tours on Wednesday and Saturday, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. or by special arrangement.

The Heritage Rose Garden is open as weather permits and has no admission fee.

Both the House and Garden are available for smaller sized special events.

Please call for more information. 715-387-3322
