Fort Winnebago Surgeons' Quarters

The Surgeon's Quarters overlook the site where Louis Joliet and Father Jacques Marquette left the Fox River at Portage in 1673. Francois LeRoi operated a portaging business; his house, built between 1819 and 1828, is now known as Surgeon's Quarters. The only remaining building of Fort Winnebago, the Surgeon's Quarters is owned, restored and maintained by Wisconsin Society Daughters of the American Revolution. Located next to the Surgeon's Quarters is the Garrison School, 1850-1960.
