Depot Museum New Temporary Exhibit:
Come see our Temporary Gallery's new exhibit! Like all history, Whitewater's history is actually a series of stories – stories of the society, events, and people living in the Whitewater area over the passage of time. The permanent exhibit being developed in the Whitewater History Gallery will tell these stories. Our new temporary exhibit provides you a taste of the story-telling you will enjoy in our soon-to-be-completed Whitewater History Gallery.

New Doors on Historic Stone Stable
If you’ve passed by the Stone Stable on Whitewater Street recently, you may have noticed its new front door. Dale Carson, of Woodworks of LaGrange, recently replaced the plywood blank that filled the space after the former door was irreparably damaged last year with a period-appropriate, handmade double-door. Dale built the door in his workshop in LaGrange , working closely with Darold Rhinedollar, a blacksmith at Old World Wisconsin, who designed and fabricated the new wrought iron hinges and fastening hardware. The former single door on the stable was not original to the structure, and research revealed a double-door to be more consistent with the style of the building. The project was jointly funded by the Society and the City of Whitewater. The City of Whitewater owns the Stone Stable and leases it to the Society
