It served as the city library until the new library opened in 1968. for a few years the building was home to the Educational Service Center until, the Waupun Historical Society leased the building in 1971. The society, as custodians of the building, renamed it the Waupun Heritage Museum. In it you will find treasures and artifacts belonging to the people and businesses of Waupun.

The Waupun Heritage Museum is home to the Citadel.  The Citadel is one of Shaler's masterpieces, was moved here in 1994 from the University of So. California where it had been on display since 1942. It was brought to Waupun in 1994 and is now placed in front of the building.
