Hazelwood Historic House Museum
Step back in time with a visit to Green Bay's only historic house open to the public that is still on its original site. Located in the Astor Historic District on South Monroe Avenue, Hazelwood is a fine example of Greek Revival architecture. Hazelwood's ten rooms contain hundreds of period furnishings, photographs and artifacts representing the Victorian period.
Built in 1837 overlooking the historic Fox River, Hazelwood was originally the home of the Morgan and Elizabeth Martin family who were a political and cultural force in the city and state for almost one hundred years. It is filled with many original items that the family owned and used on a daily basis. The home was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1964. The stately Greek Revival structure was the first home in what would, one hundred and fifty years later, become the Astor Historic District in Green Bay.
Hazelwood is open for tours seasonally, and for group tours year round. Choose from several different package options, such as the Formal Tea Tour which includes a guided tour of the house plus food and beverage served in three courses, or the Astor Neighborhood Architectural Walking Tour. Watch their website or Facebook page for information on their unique events. You won’t want to miss their A Dickens of a Christmas holiday event or their If Tombstones Could Talk walking cemetery tour.
