Buffalo County

Book Description:

Early days in Buffalo County, WI, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this New 27 page 8 1/2" x 11" spiral-bound booklet, printed single-sided on 60 # opaque paper. The front cover is a parchtex card stock, protected with a vinyl sheet. The information comes from a rare 1881 book, entitled History of Northern Wisconsin and from the 1941 WPA book, entitled Wisconsin, a Guide to the Badger State . We've included an enlarged segment of a map from the original book that includes Buffalo County, and two other maps of historic interest. Communities currently listed for this area by the National Association of Counties include: Alma (County Seat), Belvidere, Buffalo, Canton, Cochrane, Cross, Dover, Fountain City, Gilmanton, Glencoe, Lincoln, Maxville, Milton, Modena, Mondovi, Montana, Naples, Nelson and Waumandee. (Some towns may not be mentioned in the booklet.) This booklet now includes a newly added 4-page excerpt from the WPA book. Although perhaps out of date as a tour book, these WPA guides are rich in history and trivia. Among the many subjects included are: Location and Natural Resources; Early History; Early Settlers, and various "firsts", including the first election and first officers; County Seat Troubles; Agricultural Society; Newspapers; "Beef Slough" formed from the Chippewa River; Individual histories for Alma, Fountain City, Buffalo City, Mondovi and Gilmanton, and other interesting bits of history and trivia. Attention Genealogists: This booklet contains biographies of many county residents of the late 1800s. Some of these are brief, but others include family members, affiliations, war records, and business activities, in the course of which they often shed light on area businesses, churches, professions and institutions, and on news events. Those listed are: Avery T. Allen, Erik Alme, J. G. Auer, W.C. Avery, Charles A. Boehme, William Briggeboos, John Burgess, M.T.
