Welcome to the Sterling North Society

 

It may be hot outside, but it is very cool in the Sterling North Home!!  Come visit from 1:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M. every Sunday afternoon from now until November.   Join us to step into the past and tour this exquisite home that Sterling North lived in as a young boy. This beautiful home was built in 1894 in the Queen Anne architectural style.  It has been restored to its 1918 setting and has the original, ornate wood trim and wooden floors.  Furniture of the time period includes a fainting couch, a Hoosier cabinet, an organ and a piano, a wood-burning stove, an ice box and more.  Lace curtains on the main floor were made in Scotland using antique Jacquard looms.  Even if you have never heard of Sterling North, you’ll love visiting his home.

The Sterling North Home and Museum was voted winner of the Best of Kosh competition for area museums in 2019 and 2020 and Best of Kosh area tourist attraction in 2020.
