About the Wisconsin Historical Society Press

Publishers Since 1855

The mission of the Wisconsin Historical Society Press supports that of the Wisconsin Historical Society. By collecting, preserving, and sharing our stories, we help people connect to the past by publishing the best in Wisconsin history and culture.

Throughout our long history, we have explored the state's past in a variety of formats and styles. Today we create publications of enduring value that appeal to a broad audience of general readers:

  • Lively narratives about interesting people, events, and places
  • Fresh and engaging explorations of well-examined topics
  • Stories that speak to our regional community but also reach across borders to new readers
  • Publications for young readers and educators that bring history to life for a new generation
  • Our quarterly "Wisconsin Magazine of History" that presents the stories and images of the people and places of Wisconsin's past
