New Berlin Historical Society

Welcome to the New Berlin (Wisconsin)
Historical Society

On this website you will find information on:

  • Open House events and other Historical Society activities
  • The history of New Berlin

Open House events are held at Historical Park four times a year. Please refer to the Event Calendar. Also find updates on Society events on our Facebook page.

Group tours are available by appointment. Please call our tour guide, Joanne Erickson, to make arrangements.

As part of the New Berlin park system, Historical Park is open year around to visitors. Historical information is posted on all buildings. Pictures of the buildings and information signs can be viewed here.

Historical Park is located at 19765 National Avenue (ES) in New Berlin, which is just west of the intersection with Racine Avenue (Y). Now part of Historical Park is our museum and office at 19885 National Avenue. Mail can be directed to New Berlin Historical Society, 19885 National Avenue, New Berlin, WI 53146.
