Richland Center is nestled in the beautiful hills and valleys of Southwest Wisconsin. With a past full of citizens like Frank Lloyd Wright and Ada James, and landmarks such as the A.D. German Warehouse, the walking bridge across the Pine River and the first municipal auditorium in the State of Wisconsin, Richland Center is an historical area. Our population is a melting pot of ethnic groups. Norwegians, Germans and Czechs settled in the Richland Center area.
Make sure you explore some of the amazing things that our community has to offer.
Red Door Gallery
The Red Door Gallery is a unique regional art gallery, established in 2002, reflecting the talent and interests of over 30 southwestern Wisconsin artists. Inside you will find art works and gifts incorporating a wide variety of materials including glass, wood, fiber, wire, paint, photographs, gourds, ink, feathers, beads and clay. We encourage residents and visitors to the area to enjoy browsing at the Red Door Gallery.
Pine River Market and Cafe
We are a cooperatively-run grocery store that is focused on bringing quality food and good health to everyone in the Richland Center community. We were first established in 1983 in the basement of the Sears Building by a group of local folks seeking healthy food alternatives for their families. A few years later we bought the storefront two doors down from our new location on West Court. This store was run almost entirely by member volunteers. As more members joined and more groceries sold, we outgrew our space. By July 2007, we moved to our current location, with a new name, The Pine River Market & Cafe, ready to fit the needs of our growing community with one-stop shopping, a cafe, seating, and a fresh new look.
