Oconto, Oconto County, Wisconsin

The Charles Werrebroeck Home is located at Copper Culture Mounds State Park and is accessible from the dead-end of Copper Culture Way, at or near Copper Culture Way, Oconto, Wisconsin 54153.

Background: Charles Werrebroeck immigrated from Belgium to Wisconsin in 1911, along with his wife, Emma, and their infant daughter, Anna. After their first home, made of wood, was destroyed by fire, Charles, who had been a mason in Belgium, rebuilt their home using old-world brick architecture and design. Today the building is home to the Copper Culture State Park Museum.
