Welcome to Byron Historical Society!

Happy Anniversary, Byron!

Thanks to all who contributed and attended the big celebration, Saturday, August 21.  🙂

 

We Want Your Pictures!

When the 2022 BHS commemorative calendar goes on sale later this year, it will feature pictures from the anniversary parade and party.  We took photos all day long, and we know visitors that day also took pictures of their own.  If you’re willing to share those you took, please email them to [email protected].  Thank you!  

Available now! 

175th Anniversary Yard signs!  As we celebrate the anniversary of the Town of Byron’s founding, we invite you to adorn your residence or other agreeable venues with these cool signs.  There are 3 ways to get yours ($10 each) at the Town of Byron Town Hall (N3097 Highway 175, Byron WI 53006):
