At a recent Board meeting, the decision was made that the Museum will remain closed through June. This issue will be revisited in July when more information will be available on the scope and effect of the current virus pandemic. We will keep you updated through email and at our website cablehistorymuseum.com
These are truly historic times and if anyone would like to share their thoughts and comments on how this is affecting them, we would love to have these. This would be compiled as an historical record of this time for future generations. You can email us at email@example.com or by regular mail at the above address.
The Wisconsin State Historical Society is also gathering individual stories at this time. Information is on their website.
We hope you are staying safe and secure and want to thank you for your continued interest and support. We will be in touch!

You're invited to take a step back in time and explore the southern areas of Bayfield County's rich history at the Cable/Namakagon
Historical Museum in downtown Cable, Wisconsin.
The history museum was built around 1905 and initially used as a potato warehouse. The building was later used as a warehouse by the local lumber company, an apartment, office building, and as an ice cream parlor before it was donated to the Cable/Namakagon Historical Society and turned into a museum.
Since the Cable/Namakagon Historical Museum opened its doors to the public in 2005, a variety of historical exhibits and events have been open to the public. Begin your journey by learning more about the Anishinaabe people and their culture. Continue the story by learning about the expansion of the railroads, the logging era, European immigrants, area families, resorts, veterans of the Bayfield County area, and the area tourism.
In keeping the history of our area alive, we're always looking for interesting stories, artifacts, pictures, and more. Don't hesitate to contact us!
Although we are a seasonal museum, the public is invited to enjoy our many exhibits and to attend the special events held throughout the year. Visit out Exhibits and Events page for more information.
