The Westby Area Historical Society is an educational organization that encourages, preserves, advances, and disseminates the history of Westby, and its neighboring communities here in Vernon County. We believe that the history of Westby, Wisconsin is important to preserve. The Westby Area Historical Society collects photographs and documents outlining the history of the Westby area. Our Museum building, one of the community's historic homes, has an impressive history, and we open our building for meetings of area organizations, family and class reunions, and even weddings. As a museum, we collect artifacts relating to the pioneer families, their descendants, and more recent residents, preserving genealogical and historical information about those families.
The Westby Area Historical Society has access to genealogical information that few other resources have. Expert professional genealogists work with our members and friends who are beginning their research to help them develop their family history as well as assist more experienced hobbyists fill in the blanks for parts of their family tree where they have “hit a wall.”
