About this event

Step back in time to virtually tour the Historic Indian Agency House at Fort Winnebago. Built in 1832, the Agency House is among Wisconsin's earliest surviving structures. Within its walls are encapsulated powerful stories about the interactions of the United States Government and the Ho-Chunk Nation at a crossroads of early American history. Using the interactive Zoom platform, you can now experience the site's history from the comfort of your home.

The Historic Indian Agency House is offering online tours for your enjoyment from the convenience and safety of your home. A docent will guide you through the site’s interpretation center and historic structure. Because the tour is live, reservations must be made a minimum of 2 business days in advance.

The Historic Indian Agency House is an organization that preserves the 1832 home and stories of Indian Agent John Kinzie and his wife, Juliette.  Juliette wrote what is today considered one of the best firsthand descriptions of early frontier Wisconsin.  The stories passed down through her book, Wau-Bun even helped inspire her granddaughter, Juliette Gordon Low (aka Daisy) to found the Girl Scouts!  To learn more about the site, visit our website at www.agencyhouse.org.
