Mansion Museum – Forest City, Iowa
In an old Victorian home in Forest City, built at the turn of the twentieth century, the Winnebago Historical Society has its headquarters and maintains a museum. This had been a private home for several families until 1945. Then, it was converted into a hotel. In 1977 the Society purchased and restored it. They have collected and display a number of artifacts that help depict the history of Winnebago County, including vintage clothing, antique furniture, and farm tools. The museum also owns a collection of Native American arrowheads.
