The Boorman House is the home of the Juneau County Historical Society and showcases extensive collections of local artifacts, records and research materials. Dr. McIntosh's medical office building is also preserved on the site and a building housing agricultural implements, wagons and workshops.
The Boorman House is a 1876 Victorian mansion built by Benjamin C. Boorman, a native of England. In 1864, he bought the Mauston dam, mills and water rights from the estate of M. M. Maughs. After a fire destroyed the mills, he rebuilt a mill on the northside of the Lemonweir River to produce flour and feed. Later he built a sawmill and a wool carding mill on the south side of the dam. The Boorman House features a grand staircase a drawing room and a widow's walk.
The house is listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
