|Facility:||Hoard Historical Museum|
|Description:||A local history museum with a big story to tell, the Hoard Museum is like no other. Here you'll meet the Sauk warrior Black Hawk and hear the story of the 1832 Black Hawk War. Find out what kind of soldier young Abraham Lincoln was and learn how "Fort Atkinson" came to be. Then, let us introduce you to two locals of whom we're very proud - William Dempster Hoard, the father of the Wisconsin dairy industry, and world famous poet Lorine Niedecker. In between all this, you'll see a dazzling collection of Native American artifacts, quilts, local artwork and much more.
Visitors will also enjoy The National Dairy Shrine's Visitors Center, which features a multimedia show that captures the sights and sounds of dairy farming - past, present and future.
