ADA & Campus Accessibility

The Rock County Historical Society welcomes all visitors. We recognize the diverse needs of our audience and offer accessible programming to enable all visitors to explore our unique campus and its sites, inside and out.
Our Archives and Museum Center are both ADA accessible, and the first floor of the Lincoln-Tallman House is ADA accessible. The Traditional Tallman Tour is available in video format for the bedroom floor and basement.
For questions about Campus accessibility and how we can accommodate your specific needs, call RCHS Operations Manager Keighton Klos at (608) 756-4509, ext. 305, or use the contact form at the top of this page to email her.
