The Belgian Heritage Center showcases the history of the Belgian settlement in Wisconsin and seeks to preserve unique elements of the Belgian culture such as foods, beverages, customs, architecture, and the Walloon language. The center is in the former St. Mary of the Snows Church, which was a cornerstone of the historic Belgian settlement, located in the Namur Historic District that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been designated a National Landmark by the US Department of the Interior. The campus also includes the 1894 parochial schoolhouse and convent, historical markers, and the old St. Mary of the Snows cemetery. The site is known as the birthplace of the Norbertine Fathers in North America.
