The home of Copper Falls State Park, Mellen is situated on the Bad River and is next to the beautiful, wooded hills of the Penokee Mountain Range and the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.
Mellen is a bustling community of about 800 people, and provides the services and hospitality you have learned to expect in Northern Wisconsin. Nearby, an abundance of pristine lakes and miles of trout streams supply anglers with a variety of fishing experiences year-round. Large numbers of deer, black bear, small game, ruffed grouse, ducks and geese await the hunter for the fall season. Historic sites and structures include the Mellen City Hall, a restored Victorian structure listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Mellen Area Historical Museum is located on the second floor of the 1896 City Hall in a space that was originally built as a community recreation center. The restored stage hosts theatrical productions that continue the facility’s century-old community gathering tradition. Exhibits include logging and farm equipment, weaving looms, vintage clothing, period home and business items, military artifacts, historical maps and more.
