Winnebago Indian School opened in December 1878 as a missionary school for the Ho- Chunk. It became a boarding school at about the time of World War I. Originally located about 7 miles northwest of Black River Falls, it was moved to Neillsville in 1921. It continued to operate until after World War II.
