KAUKAUNA, WI (WTAQ) - A historic mansion in Kaukauna is open to the public after being closed for eight years.
The Grignon Mansion held its grand re-opening Saturday.
There was a dedication ceremony at the home along the Fox River, followed by self-guided tours.
The mansion was built in the 1800s by Charles Grignon, whose family had been active in the fur trade.
When it was closed, the landmark underwent significant restorations, including a new roof.
Those working with the mansion say it still isn't perfect, but they are happy to have it open to the public.
"There's a lot of things that still need to be done. The exterior windows need to be re-glazed and the building needs to be painted, and there's just a lot of things still to be done," Bruce Werschem, a member of the Grignon Mansion Board, tells FOX 11.
The mansion is open to the public every weekend through mid-September.
After that, It is open by appointment only.
