The Alexander House in Port Edwards, Wisconsin is an interestingly unusual museum. It is an art and history museum that focuses on the region?s local history, particularly the lumber and papermaking industries. Thousands of its collections on display are related to lumber and woodworking, as well as paper-related arts and artifacts.

The Alexander House was founded in 1990 by the Alexander Charitable Foundation. The museum?s primary aim was to be the repository and gallery of the collection of the former Nekoosa-Edwards Paper Company. The foundation and museum was named after John Alexander, who was the paper company?s top boss for several years. He hails from a family of pioneer paper and lumber industry in Wisconsin.

The museum offers tours to inform visitors the history of the said industries. One of the museum?s collections is a set of colonial-style furniture. Other exhibits include works of local and national artists.
