Stonefield Historic Village in Cassville, Wisconsin began as the estate of Nelson Dewey, Wisconsin's first Governor. Now, it is a showplace of Wisconsin's rich history and agricultural heritage. Join us on a day trip to these treasured grounds as they celebrate Railroad Days. This annual celebration gives us greater insights into life along the railroad and features model trains, a refurbished caboose, living history reenactments of hobo culture, and there's always a pot of Mulligan Stew cooking up in the End of the Line hobo camp.
Stonefield's grounds also include a 1901 farmstead with six outbuildings, live animals and a furnished farmhouse; the State Agricultural Museum which houses Wisconsin's largest collection of farm tools, models, and machinery detailing the state’s agricultural past; as well as a rural village with 30 shops, offices and services where tradesmen demonstrate things like broom-making and blacksmithing.
Visitors can also tour the summer home of Nelson Dewey, who built it on a hill overlooking 2,000 acres of countryside - an estate that he named Stonefield. Costumed interpreters lead tours through the home's two floors, sharing details about how an upper-class family of the 19th century lived.
The Stonefield Store, located in the Visitor Center, carries a selection of reproduction period goods, crafts, children's toys and railroad-themed souvenirs. The store also has a wide array of candy, postcards, jewelry, clothing, beverages, popcorn, ice cream and candy.
A Van Galder coach will leave the Lincoln Center, 845 Hackett St., at 7:30 a.m. Rolls and coffee will be available inside the building starting at 7 a.m. Loading for the return trip will begin at 2:45 p.m. with the bus departing at 3 p.m. We expect to arrive in Beloit between 5:30 and 6 p.m. Cost for this trip is $45 for members, $50 for non-members. Children aged 13-17 are welcome, accompanied by an adult, for $42 each.
Lunch will be on your own, with foods like sloppy joes or hot dogs, in addition to the Mulligan Stew, available for purchase in honor of Railroad Days. The Saloon will serve root beer. Guests are welcome to pack their own lunch and take advantage of the many picnic tables scattered about the grounds.
Many pathways at Stonefield are level, but they can be somewhat rugged. Wheelchairs access is available to the Visitor Center, State Agriculture Museum, and a few other buildings. Those who wish to have an audio tour using their smart phone while visiting Stonefield can download the audio tour from the website to play on your personal audio device.
