When you are in the Belmont area, take time to visit the First Capitol historic site. The museum’s site has two buildings that were first used by territorial legislators to meet within the Wisconsin territory. The legislators met from October 25 to December 9, 1836 and they eventually put 42 laws on the books, established the judiciary system, and built the framework for establishing what would later be Wisconsin. They have also established Madison as a Capital City and also established Railroad station North of Grandview. The first house of First Capitol was used as the primary council house for the legislators to meet and the second house was used for lodging. Eventually, the houses were used as residences and became the residence of territorial Supreme Court Justice Charles Dunn. Then in 1910 the Wisconsin Federation of Women’s Clubs began raising funds for the improvement of the buildings. In 1954 the site was moved and then the buildings restored. By 1994, the First Capitol buildings became part of the Wisconsin Historical Society.
