Built overlooking the historic Fox River, Hazelwood was originally the home of the Morgan and Elizabeth Martin family who were a political and cultural force in the city and state for almost one hundred years. It is filled with many original furnishings, family photographs, paintings and artifacts. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1964.
The Brown County Historical Society purchased Hazelwood in 1989 and undertook a five-year capital campaign to restore and endow the historic home. Principal restoration was completed in 1995.
Hazelwood is open for tours seasonally, and for group tours year round.
