Early days in Green Lake County, WI, are recalled in this New 24 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. We've enlarged the area on a map from the original book, and included it along with two other maps of historic interest. Communities currently listed for this area by the National Association of Counties include: Berlin (part), Brooklyn, Dalton, Green Lake (County Seat), Kingston, Mackford, Manchester, Markesan, Marquette, Princeton, Saint Marie, Seneca. (Some towns may not be mentioned in the booklet.) Among the many subjects included are: Location and Natural Resources; County organization; Crops; Winnebagoes and Menomones; Big Soldier, a Winnebago chief; Antiquities; Early white settlers; First Church and other firsts; Schools; War Record; the Berlin Light Guards; Legislative representatives; Summer Attractions; Strong's landing (later Berlin); Manufactories; Societies; Fires; Newspapers; the village of Princeton; dispute over which town would be the county seat; and other interesting bits of history and trivia. There is also a nice sketch of Berlin from across the lake. 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.
