Hearthstone Historic House Museum

Who We Are

Hearthstone Historic House Museum is the world’s first home lighted with hydro-electricity using a Thomas Edison system.  History, culture and innovation are “illuminated” in a beautiful 1880’s Victorian era mansion built by an early Wisconsin entrepreneur. 

What We Do

The mission and promise of the Friends of Hearthstone Inc. is to restore and preserve Hearthstone, a Victorian landmark house, and to re-create a historical experience based on its Thomas A. Edison heritage for the cultural enjoyment and educational benefit of the public.

Regular Tours: Thursdays – Sundays. Special seasonal exhibits and events include the Annual Appleton Antique Show and Sale in April, Haunted Hearthstone, and Victorian Christmas.
