Mission: Martell’s Landing Education Center is dedicated to preserving the natural and human history of the St. Croix Riverway and is committed to promoting stewardship of the land and waterways through collaborative community programs.
About: Located north of Somerset, Wisconsin, at the confluence of the Apple and the St. Croix Rivers, Martell’s sits amid a landscape of stunning beauty and tranquility. The 16-acre site is surrounded by Department of Natural Resources’ protected woods, and home to deer, beaver, otter, sandhill cranes, owls, wild turkeys, bald eagles, hawks and numerous other birds and woodland creatures. There are four buildings on the scenic property, two cottages, a large workshop, and a main house.
Ambrose Martell arrived from Canada in 1855 to build a log cabin, which remains part of the main house today. The combination of history and serene landscape makes Martell’s Landing a memorable place to visit.
Martell’s Landing Education Center, a 501(c)(3) organization, offers living classroom experience with a chance to get up-close with diverse natural habitats. This peaceful scenic setting is the perfect backdrop for any retreat or learning experience. The historic log home offers meeting and lodging space. Come here to experience history and nature in one setting.
