The Belgian Heritage Center will document the
history of the Belgian settlement in Wisconsin
and preserve unique elements of Belgian culture
such as foods, beverages, customs, architecture
and the Walloon language. The center is located
in the former St. Mary of the Snows church
which was a cornerstone of the historic Belgian
settlement. The building is 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 Interior. The building is being
restored to represent the period in which the
community formed its roots which will create
historical context for the visitor.
Open for pre-arranged tours only, by appointment. Please call.
