Become a Member of the Cambridge Historic School

The Cambridge Historic School Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the rich history and culture of Cambridge and the surrounding community. The Museum operates with three primary goals in mind:

  1. To restore and maintain the 1906 school building, listed on the Wisconsin State Register of Historic Places.

  2. To preserve the many valued artifacts of the Cambridge area families and events of the past and present. The preservation and perpetuation of traditions is important in telling the story about the families who lived, worked and established the Cambridge area.

  3. To develop a Wisconsin Pottery Center providing the opportunity for youth and adults to enhance their talent and creativity in developing local and area pottery.
