According to The Historic Indian Agency House Executive Director Adam Novey, the site’s 2023 season saw 2,225 visitors participating in tours, events, programs, and school outreach, representing a 41% increase over 2022’s gross visitation of 1,582.
“This past season, the Historic Indian Agency House has seen visitor engagement numbers exceed 2019 levels for the first time since COVID,” said Agency House Executive Director Adam Novey. “This year’s visitor statistics have shown a significant proportional increase in visits from residents of the South Central Wisconsin region versus other parts of the state.”
Novey credits some unique opportunities this year that have had a major impact on attendance numbers. In November, 399 middle school students were reached with the Mobile Museum, dramatically increasing the school group figure. Three special programs held in partnership with regional tour groups and organizations (representing 254 people) significantly increased “Stone Building Tour” and event figures.
