About General Admission
Explore history by the acre on the former estate of Wisconsin’s first governor, Nelson Dewey. Admission includes access to Dewey’s home site, the Stonefield Village, the State Agricultural Museum, and a 1901 Progressive Farmhouse. Together, these buildings help tell the story of Wisconsin from its founding as a state through the agricultural revolution of the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Stonefield Village includes over 30 shops and factories that provide a historic perspective on Wisconsin life during the early 20th century, while the farmstead showcases how farming drastically evolved during the time thanks to new technologies and ideas. The State Agricultural Museum includes Wisconsin’s largest collection of farm tools, models, and machinery, all of which help show how these innovations helped the state become “America’s Dairyland” and an agricultural superpower. The Dewey homestead interprets the life of our state’s first governor.

About the Location
Stonefield began as the agricultural estate of Nelson Dewey, the first governor of Wisconsin. Dewey had lived in Cassville before serving for two terms as governor. When he returned with his family after leaving office in 1852, Dewey bought up land and businesses in the area with the hopes helping the community grow. Today the site explores the history of the state as it transitioned from a society that was powered by manual labor and horses into one powered by machines.
