The Historic Indian Agency House in Portage, Wisconsin just east of Baraboo, was built by the U.S. government for the Indian Agent to the Ho-Chunk Nation (Winnebago).  The Historic Indian Agency House stands on its original spot at the portage between the Fox and Wisconsin rivers along the Portage canal that connected the two. The Historic Indian Agency House is open from May 15- October 15, with guided tours available for a small fee.  (2012 – Guided Tours: $6, Seniors $5, Students $3, 5 & under free. Family $15.00.)

The Historic Indian Agency House is located just northeast of downtown Portage, Wisconsin, off State Hwy 33. Watch for the signs that point you down Rustic Road 69, just before a bridge that crosses over the historic Portage canal. Park in the Visitor Center lot at the end of the road. (Just beyond this parking area is a trail head for the Marquette Segment of the Ice Age Trail.)

* Please note: In 2012 The Agency House itself is under renovation.. During this time virtual tours of the home will be given only. All other indoor and outdoor displays including nature trail and Native American village will be open to the public.
