Sterling North Museum

Visit the childhood home of Sterling North, an Edgerton native who lived from 1906 to 1974. North wrote such classics as “So Dear to My Heart,” “The Wolfling,” and beloved children’s book “Rascal,” an autobiographical story about raising a raccoon in the Edgerton area in the early 1900s. Both “Rascal” and “So Dear to My Heart” were adapted to films by Walt Disney. North’s childhood home and barn have been turned into a museum and literary center. Self-guided individual tours and guided school and group tours are available. There is also a gift shop that features books, clothing and collectibles. Open on Sundays from May through October, from 1 to 4 p.m. and other times by appointment.
