The Hawks Inn Visitor Center has been renamed The Delafield History Center
The Delafield History Center, adjacent to Hawks Inn contains a multi-purpose room for seminars, meetings, educational displays, and video presentations. Wi-Fi is available. Although the Inn is now closed until the first weekend of May for tours, the History Center is open every Wednesday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 for volunteer work and for visitors who are welcome to see our photo collection, archives and library.
It has been renamed to emphasize to the public that our archives are not limited to those pertaining only to Hawks Inn and the Hawks family, but include historical information for the entire Delafield area. Our large photo collection: Delafield Then and Now, has photos going back to 1870s Delafield and continuing to the present. Our center also newly displays a large painting by local artist Charles Weber of Civil War hero Alonzo Cushing who was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor at a ceremony at Cushing Park in Delafield on Memorial Day weekend 2015. Residents who find historical information about Delafield in their family archives are encouraged to share it with our History Center.
The History Center at Hawks Inn is available for use by groups, organizations and families.
