Washburn Cultural Center


1 E. Bayfield St.
Washburn, WI 54891



Washburn’s unique story is preserved and housed in a magnificent brownstone structure known as “The Old Bank Building.” Built in 1890 by A. C. Probert, it is listed on both State and National Registers of Historic Places. The Washburn Cultural Center is dedicated to the preservation of this unique building while serving as a community gathering place and focal point.

The Washburn Cultural Center building houses an Antiques & Gift Shop, Art Galleries and the Washburn Area Historical Museum. The Washburn Cultural Center is a community gathering place dedicated to fostering, presenting and preserving the cultural, artistic and historical life of Washburn and the surrounding Chequamegon Bay area. Membership is open to all who desire to participate in the preservation of our historic brownstone building and the rich heritage of the area. We are a community resource and encourage the use of our building for meetings, receptions, workshops and exhibits.
