What Else Can a Visitor Do?
So, you are here on a weekend visit.
Or you are simply passing through and happen to see
the Museum sign on the barn. You stop. You take the tour.
You browse the Farmstead Flea Market.
Small kids restless and not ready to get back in the car?
What else can you do?
Let them take a run through the Paperjack Greenway.
Just north of the barn and across a footbridge you will find our
11-acre nature trail area.
Spend some time in one of New Richmond's parks
may be a good idea, too. Mary Park can be found
on the south edge of the Willow River,
to the east of Knowles Avenue (main street)
and has outstanding play areas and equipment.
Looking for more History? Take the self-guided walking tour
West First Street,
off Knowles Avenue just before the Willow River bridge.
A walking guide is available at the Heritage Center
and the Chamber of Commerce.
The Centre is home to the Friday Aquatic Center,
at 428 Starr Avenue, and offers a beautiful indoor swimming pool
with all the amenities including an exercise center and gym.
Time for golf? The New Richmond Golf Club has two courses:
the 18-Hole Championship Course and the 9-Hole Links Course.
Other courses can be found close by as well.
The Old Gem Theater can be found at 116 S. Knowles Avenue or on line at
You will find excellent quality local performances at very reasonable prices.
Why not head north on Hwy. 65,
about five miles to Star Prairie.
Walk the 100 year-old Star Prairie Trout Farm
with its myriad pools or try your luck at
trout fishing; it can be cleaned and frozen
while you wait, to take home.
Or turn west on Fourth Street
and seven miles down the road you'll be in Somerset,
the floating (as in inner-tubes) capital of the world.
