H. H. Bennett Studio
Welcome to the H.H. Bennett Studio, the historic photography studio built in 1875 by none other than the noted landscape photographer H.H. Bennett.
Henry Hamilton Bennett was born in 1843 and died in 1908. In his time he served as an important visual historian, his stereoscopic views of the Dells of the Wisconsin River the reason visitors were first attracted to this area, and the reason the Dells were made so famous. It is believed that Bennett sold 20,000 stereoview photos by 1874! Aside from photography, Bennett was also a civil war soldier and inventor.
At this photography museum, you will get to see historic exhibits, photos, and recreated workspaces all centered around 'the man who made the Dells famous'. Explore the historic storefront, Bennett's Photography Studio, and various special exhibits such as George H. Houghton: Civil War Cameraman during your visit. Field Trip Groups will have the option to take a 45 to 60 minute tour focused on social studies and science while here, with options for brown bag lunches and boat tour combos available.
