Beautiful Badger Park was constructed during the 1930’s. It was financed primarily with funds from the W.P.A (Works Progress Administration) and was sponsored by Mayor Dr. H.W. Hoesly whose dream was to build a park. During this time the shelter houses, pool, bathhouse, baseball field, football field, tennis courts and picnic areas were constructed.
Our park is enjoyed by the community every day whether it be a picnic, ballgame, or just families enjoying the playground. We invite you to visit.

Newly renovated in 2006, the museum contains artifacts from Shullsburg’s 179 year history, and shows how life was in Wisconsin’s early mining communities. Exhibits focus on some of Shullsburg’s most important industries, including mining and cheesemaking, but also on day-to-day life through the decades.
