1849 Kuhefuss House Museum
The Kuhefuss House Museum is located in Cedarburg's downtown National Historic District at W63N627 Washington Avenue.
Maintained by the Cultural Center, the Kuhefuss House Museum is among the oldest and most important residences in Cedarburg. This simple Greek Revival structure has stood sentinel beside Washington Avenue for more than 160 years and serves as an excellent example of early German-American family life. During this period, the house provided a gracious homestead for five generations of one of Cedarburg's oldest families.
School teacher Marie Kuhefuss, the last surviving member of the family, bequeathed the home to the Cultural Center in 1989. A founding member of the Center, Miss Kuhefuss also left an extensive collection of family photographs and memorabilia which can be seen in the home.
