As one of the first historical societies in the State of Wisconsin, the Ripon Historical Society is well established. In 1899, out of a concern to preserve the early history and development of Ripon and the Wisconsin Phalanx, the Ripon Historical Society was founded. Its charter members branched out to gather historical records and artifacts wherever possible and to write the stories of the prominent men, women and events before all recollections were gone or forgotten.
