Kenosha History Center

The Kenosha History Center includes two museum galleries: The Yesteryear Gallery and the Rambler Legacy Gallery. The Yesteryear Gallery shows what life was like in 19th Century Kenosha County. The Gallery includes a blacksmith exhibit. The Rambler Legacy Gallery looks at Kenosha in the 20th Century with changing exhibits. It focuses on the growth of the automotive industry, featuring a rotating collection of antique cars. An Archive houses the collections of the Kenosha Historical Society: papers, maps, manuscripts, records, photographs, and newspapers. The Southport Light Station is located on the museum site.

We hope you enjoy our work.
