What you will see on your tour of the Cranberry Discovery Center Museum.........

The Workshop

Come and explore what we call Albert’s workshop – an exhibit full of fascinating woodworking equipment custom made by growers to harvest the unique fruit, including the infamous handrake.

The Dugout Canoe

On permanent loan from the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, the canoe is nearly 11 feet long and a classic dugout shape. First used by Native Americans, dugout canoes were generally constructed out of a single log, shaped through repeated charring and scraping. Cranberries are native North American fruit and were gathered by Native Americans for use as food, medicine and dye.

The Model T Ford

Carl Getsinger owned two cranberry marshes that were located one mile apart. His cranberries would be ruined if they froze, so he needed to flood the beds to cover the vines and protect them from freezing. At the time, walking was his only form of transportation.

Eventually, Carl was able to buy a 1914 Model T truck to help with this cranberry chore. 

Stop by and see the 1914 Model T truck that helped Carl get the job done.
