The Rhinelander Community Foundation is pleased to introduce the Pioneer Park Historical Complex Fund

The Pioneer Park Historical Complex (PPHC) is rich with the history of Rhinelander and Northern Wisconsin. The complex has an outstanding collection of artifacts, equipment, and structures from the area’s storied past and includes:

  • Logging Museum
  • Red’s Antique Sawmill Museum
  • Rural Schoolhouse Museum
  • Duke’s Outboard Motor & Boating Museum
  • Rhinelander Fire Apparatus Museum
  • Civilian Conservation Corps Museum
  • Rhinelander Railroad Museum
  • Proposed Pioneer Log Cabin Museum

The Pioneer Park Historical Complex Fund was established within the Rhinelander Community Foundation (RCF) to preserve our area’s treasured history by allowing donors to financially assist the PPHC with special projects.

We are especially excited to announce that George and Sondra Juetten will match the first $25,000 in donations to the Pioneer Park Historical Complex Fund.

Charitable donations directed to the PPHC Fund will be used to make grants available for high priority projects at the complex as recommended by a PPHC advisory committee, unless otherwise designated to specific museums within the complex as listed above.

To make a tax-deductible donation to the PPHC Fund, checks should be made payable to: Rhinelander Community Foundation with ‘PPHC Fund’ written in the memo line and mailed to:
