This historic courthouse was once built as a city hall for the City of Vaughn, which disassembled and was later replaced by Hurley. The extravagant building was luxurious for the time, especially in a city so quaint. Since then, the building has been converted into a historical museum that serves as a gateway to the areas past.
An iconic landmark in the Hurley skyline stands this historic courthouse. It’s bell tower extends 120 feet upward into the Wisconsin sky. The museum that lies inside now documents not only the history of the beautiful building but also community of Hurley and Iron County.
Built in 1893, the building changed hands from the City of Vaughn to Iron County to a historical museum in the 1970s.
Iron County Courthouse and Museum is located at 303 Iron Street in downtown Hurley, Wisconsin. For more information about hours and admission, please visit the official website here.
