Mansion Museum

The Mansion Museum is the home of the Winnebago Historical Society and also features the Leibrand-Whiteis Historical Center.  The Museum which was built at the turn of the century was built as the home of banker Charles J. Thompson.  Mr. Thompson at the time was the president of the Forest City National Bank and one of the backers of the Summit Hotel.

The Museum, in addition to being a beautiful example of neoclassical architecture, is also currently home to a variety of unique and rare collections and exhibits.

The Mansion Museum is open June through August each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is $7 for adults. Children age 12 and under are admitted free. Call Carol Whiteis at 641-585-2308 or Riley Lewis at 641-430-0178 for tour information.
