The Winnebago County Historical and Archaeological Society (WCHAS) promotes the advancement of local history in Winnebago County through programs and tours of its headquarters, the Morgan House, a Queen Anne style Victorian home built in 1884.
The Morgan House, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, is preserved by the Winnebago County Historical and Archaeological Society. The Morgan House is located in the downtown area at 234 Church Avenue, across from the City Hall parking lot. Please visit the Morgan House again if you were a past visitor -- the interior was renovated in 2011.
