Peshtigo Historical Day
September 24, 2022
The Peshtigo Fire Museum is located on the site of the Catholic
Church that Father Pernin lost in the fire. The building is the first
church rebuilt in Peshtigo after the fire and is actually the former
Congregational church. The building was moved to this location
after the Catholic Church on that corner was destroyed by fire
(again) in 1927. When St. Mary Parish built new church a few
blocks away, the Congregational church building was acquired by
the Peshtigo Historical Society. It became home to the Peshtigo
Fire Museum in 1963.
Visitors are welcome to explore on their own or hear stories about
the fire from the museum guides. Presentations for groups of ten or
more can be scheduled—just call 715-582-3244
