Previously known as the Houdini Historic Center and the Outagamie Museum, the History Museum at the Castle is a local history museum housed in what was once a masonic temple. The building, which was constructed in 1923 and is on the National Register of Historic Places, has some stunning architectural aspects outside as well as indoors. Visitors are free to browse the extensive collection, which mainly focuses on Fox River Valley’s history and has artifacts from the year 1840 onwards. Rooms and exhibitions in the museum have been dedicated to Senator Joe McCarthy, an Appleton resident, John Bradley, one of the six men who raised the flag on Iwo Jima, and Harry Houdini himself, with many of the performer’s personal documents and paraphernalia such as locks and handcuffs.
