Where Past Meets Present

Rock County Historical Society

The Campus

The Rock County Historical Society and the City of Janesville share responsibility for preserving a campus of five historic sites just north of downtown Janesville. These sites showcase the history of Janesville and Rock County, Wisconsin. While our tradition focuses on preserving history, our goal is to make history more relevant and interesting to all who live and visit the area.
