Project Details

The Schroeder Saddletree Factory Museum Virtual Tour highlights the last saddletree factory in America that dates back to the 19th century. Because it is the last of its kind, Historic Madison, Inc. has made it available to a wider audience through a free virtual tour. The tour allows visitors to explore the three museum buildings. Virtual visitors can learn as much as they desire with icons positioned throughout the spaces. The tour is also VR compatible. This unique industrial heritage site has many great stories to tell and virtual visitors can explore them all from anywhere in the world!
