Leibrand-Whiteis Historical Center

 The Leibrand-Whiteis Historical Center in the Mansion Museum officially opened June 3, 2012. Headed by Ruth Leibrand and Carol Whiteis, the air-conditioned center holds historical documentation from Winnebago County — Britt, Buffalo Center, Lake Mills, Leland, Rake and Forest City. It holds local and regional news from 1874 to 1921 and microfilm from 1874 to 1950. The center will eventually include an obituary file, veterans information, naturalization records from the courthouse, books on the the hospital and local businesses, and birth and death records. Ruth and Carol are available to help with family research and finding information about the county’s history.
