Early days in Kewaunee County, WI, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this New 21 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 . Communities currently listed for this area by the National Association of Counties include: Ahnapee, Algoma, Carlton, Casco, Franklin, Kewaunee (County Seat), Lincoln, Luxemburg, Montpelier, Pierce, Red River, Rio Creek, West Kewaunee. (Some towns may not be mentioned in the booklet.) This booklet includes a 5-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 Although perhaps out of date as a tour book, these WPA guides are rich in history and trivia.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 Advantages, Property Valuation; Civil War Record; Political boundaries and elections; Gold Rush Speculation and Kewaunee vs. Chicago; John Volk, Joseph McCormick, and other early settlers; Churches, Schools, Organizations; 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.
