Dreams of an Island CIty

November 16, 1935 Oshkosh Northwestern
 
Some of this naming has been touched upon in earlier blog posts.  But I'd still like a look at that map, as detailed in the above article.  I remember reading somewhere that Governor Doty originally had plans for what he termed "Island CIty," that Doty Island would be the prime focus of the settlement.  This article bears that out. But as we know, the Reed brothers and other civic leaders of the time had their own plans that precluded Governor Doty's dream.

  1. The Neenah Historical Society has this map at the Ward House. Stop in and see it.
