Fort Winnebago Surgeons Quarters, located in Portage, Wisconsin, is owned and operated by the Wisconsin Society Daughters of the AmericanRevolution. The Surgeons Quarters, built in 1828, is one of the oldest French Colonial log structures in the state. Fort Winnebago was constructed from 1828-1830 as one of three forts built along the Fox - Wisconsin Waterway from Green Bay to Prairie du Chien. The Fort was abandoned in 1845 and much of it was destroyed in an 1856 fire.
