Henschel Indian Museum

Henschel Indian Museum

Since the first Henschel homesteader settled in Sheboygan County in 1849, the family's land has yielded evidence of 10,000 years of human occupation. Today, the Henschel collection of prehistoric artifacts is one of the most complete in Wisconsin. A truly captivating collection of Indian artifacts including chipped and ground stone tools, bone tools, projectile points, copper implements, pottery and antler artifacts track the lives and times of the original culture inhabiting the area.
