Black River Falls is home to the Jackson County Historical Society Museum. This small museum is located in a former Carnegie Library, one of 1,689 such libraries built in the early 20th Century with funds from philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.

Inside this historic building, you will find an array of artifacts and exhibits relating to the history of Black River Country. Exhibits cover two floors and include the Clay Post Office and an authentic turn-of-the-century dental office. Several displays showcase logging and lumbering, which were important in the development on the area. The Native American history of the area is represented through photos and beadwork.
