Step into the Lives of a
Wisconsin Dynasty

When you walk through the doors of Villa Louis, you step into the life of one of Wisconsinโ€™s most historic families โ€“ The Dousmans. Located on the beautiful banks of the mighty Mississippi River, this National Historic Landmark offers a panorama of Wisconsin history, from the advent of the first fur traders through the splendor of the Victorian era.

Experienced interpreters will take you on a journey through time as you tour the stunning 1871 Italianate style mansion the Dousmans called home for more than four decades, and the surrounding estate. The 25-acre site includes over a dozen historic structures including the Dousman Office Building, Ice House, Preserve House, Blockhouse, the foundations of the first Fort Crawford, and the stateโ€™s only War of 1812 battlefield.
