Marshfield (OnFocus)- The historic restored home of Governor William H. Upham is open now to tours by appointment.
The Upham House is a mid-Victorian style home with Italianate architecture. The home was built in 1880 and hosts exhibits, activities, and local historical research for the North Wood County Historical Society.
One of the home’s main attractions is the Heritage Rose Garden that has 30 rose plants that can date back to the year 200AD. You can walk through the ancient flowers on the grounds’ stylish arbor with bower-seated walkways.
The Upham House hosts a fundraiser every year called the Ice Cream Social during Marshfield’s Dairyfest, but this year’s event was canceled.
Available tour hours are Wednesdays and Saturdays from 1:30 PM to 4 PM. Guests are asked to wear masks and limit groups to six people or less.
You can schedule your tour by calling the North Wood County Historical Society office at (715)387-3322 and check out their website at https://www.uphammansion.com for more information.
