Classic Experience

In 1875, H.H. Bennett, a Civil War veteran, returned to his hometown of Wisconsin Dells and opened a photography studio. His images of the Wisconsin River and towering sandstone bluffs were used in early promotional pieces that helped draw attention to the scenery and bring visitors to the area.  Considered among the finest landscape photographers in the country, he revolutionized the photography world with his 1888 invention of the stop-action camera shutter.  His original studio, with gallery of photos, still stands today on Broadway and is believed to be the oldest in the Dells.
