Welcome to the Governor William H. Upham House

A restored home of former Wisconsin governor William Henry Upham, this house represents mid-Victorian architecture at its finest. The furnishings in the mansion are vintage Victorian, many of them left by the Upham family.

Constructed in 1880, the mansion is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It now serves as the center for the North Wood County Historical Society exhibits, activities, and local history research.

The mansion is the site of the annual Pie and Ice Cream Social held during Marshfield's Dairyfest. The mansion is also open to a festive Christmas Event on the first Saturday and Sunday in December from 1:30 p.m. through 4:00 p.m.

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

The garden is open June through September and has no admission fee. The mansion is open year-round on Wednesday and Saturday, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.; admission is $2 adults, 12 and under free, open by special arrangement for groups. Call for more information.
