Visit the childhood home of Sterling North, an Edgerton native who lived from 1906 to 1974. North wrote such classics as So Dear to My Heart, The Wolfling, and beloved children's book Rascal, an autobiographical story about raising a raccoon in the Edgerton area in the early 1900s. Both Rascal and So Dear to My Heart were adapted to films by Walt Disney. His childhood home and barn have been turned into a museum and literary center. Self-guided individual tours, and guided school and group tours are available. There is also a gift shop that features books, clothing and collectibles.

A series of events are planned throughout 2022 in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Sterling North Home and Museum.
