Historic Location

Black Earth Children's Museum has brought new life to a special & historic location in Black Earth, WI. The building that we are located in was once home to the first cooperative in the United States. The Patrons' Mercantile Co-Op opened April 9, 1894 and then moved to our building in 1897. A fire in 1933 destroyed the original building but it was rebuilt within 9 months of the fire and the Co-Op operated in the building until 1994. Many local residents have stories to share of time spent as a patron of the Co-Op. Since its inception, the building has been about supporting the community, and we strive to continue that mission.
