The Washburn Cultural Center building houses an Antiques & Gift Shop, Art Galleries/Shows/Events and the Washburn Area Historical Museum.
Our Mission: A community center dedicated to fostering, presenting and preserving the cultural, artistic and historical life of Washburn and the surrounding area.
Washburn’s unique story is preserved and housed in a magnificent brownstone structure known as “The Old Bank Building.” Built in 1890 by A. C. Probert, it is listed on both State and National Registers of Historic Places. The Washburn Cultural Center is dedicated to the preservation of this unique building while serving as a community gathering place and focal point. The Center is a place for cultural enrichment and an educational resource for the entire community. We encourage the use of our building for meetings, receptions, workshops and exhibits.
We are on Highway 13, the main thoroughfare in Washburn, between Bayfield and Ashland. You can't miss our beautiful building on the north side of the downtown area!
