The Iron County Historical Museum is located in Hurley in Wisconsin’s Iron County. The museum itself was built in 1893 and originally served as the town hall. There are three floors full of historical displays of iron mining to railroads, lumbering to military, home-life to religion. A weaving room shows ancient methods and looms that produce rag rugs. The museums clocktower has the clockworks for the four clocks that were set in motion in 1893. These clocks are still in operation and chime on the hour.
