The purpose of the Vernon County Historical Society is to preserve and promote Vernon County history.

The Vernon County Historical Society operates four historical sites: The Vernon County Museum, Old St. Mary's Church Museum, the Foreaker One Room Schoolhouse, and historic Sherry-Butt House.

The Vernon County Historical Society is governed by an Executive Board. This board consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, three Directors, and the Immediate Past President. Each is entitled to one vote. Officers are elected yearly at the November general meeting. The Executive Board meets monthly.
