H.H. Bennett's studio in Wisconsin Dells

H.H. Bennett Studio


The historic 1875 studio in which H. H. Bennett established his legacy offers a window to the life and times of the pioneering photographer. Visitors enter the studio -- now restored to its appearance in 1908, the year of Bennett's death -- through the workroom where he manufactured the stereo cards he sold by the thousands. While he is most well known for his breathtaking landscape photographs, Bennett produced many fine portraits in this room, including several of the native Ho-Chunk people with whom he established both personal and professional relationships.
