Jacobsen Museum is named after Jens Jacobsen, who preserved the remnants of a Potawatomi village that once stood in that part of Washington Island. He built the rustic log structure in 1931 to house the artifacts and relics he discovered. The island was once the site of one of the earliest coral reefs, and visitors can also view specimens related to that, as well as history of the island. The Museum is open daily from Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day weekend.
