The Rock County Historical Society is a resource for historical research, thought-provoking programming, and one-of-a-kind historic sites.
The Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center, housed in the 1912 Prairie-style residence of Stanley Dexter Tallman, serves as the Lincoln-Tallman House's visitor and ticketing center and houses the administrative offices of the Rock County Historical Society.

Visitors will also discover pottery, children's items, unique upcycled mittens, scarves and other attire, an assortment of locally made masks, and a wide selection of jewelry including costume pieces, fine jewelry, and collectibles.
