Dr. Kate Museum Celebrates 26th Year!

Dr. KateThrough the dedication of many, past and present, the Museum enters its 26th year. The dream of such a facility dates back to the 1960’s and because of the generosity of the Town of Woodruff, Howard Young Medical Center, the Newcomb family and many volunteers, the Dr. Kate Museum opened in 1988.

Many accomplishments have been achieved over the past two and a half decades including: The 50th Anniversary Million Penny Parade, establishment of the Dr. Kate Pelham Newcomb Museum Memorial Scholarship, publication of three cookbooks, and gaining copyrights and reprinting the best-selling biography, Dr. Kate: Angel on Snowshoes. The museum will be opening soon with a new look, new exhibits and giving you an historic view of the northwoods.  Twenty-six years later, the Dr. Kate Museum/Historical Society continues to preserve the history of Dr. Kate, the long time history of Woodruff and the Million Penny Parade. Please join us by getting involved-- volunteer, donate, create, preserve, dream.
