Historic Schoolhouse

The Restored 19th Century Schoolhouse
is an Ideal Event Space

The eight-sided 19th-century schoolhouse is an event space and gallery that joins arts and community in beautiful Downsville, Wisconsin. The historic Downsville schoolhouse overlooks the Red Cedar River Valley, oxbow ponds, and an expanse of woodland, and native prairie. Here, there is nothing but the wide open space of nature to surround and captivate you and your guests.

Away from the noise of an urban setting, the historic Downsville schoolhouse is a perfect event space for a retreat, a family reunion, a class, a business meeting, or a wedding.
