Gideon and Ellen Hixon were early pioneers, community builders, and philanthropists in La Crosse. Their home was donated to LCHS by their descendants in 1965, complete with most of its original furnishings. Tours of their beautifully preserved home bring together local history and decorative arts history into one fascinating local story.
