So, it comes as a bit of a surprise to see our very own Little Lake Butte des Morts listed as Lake Winnebago, as shown above in this 1900 version of our fair town. One hopes the meticulousness of the preparers in detailing construction of the town's buildings would have carried over to the geography of the area. But considering that these were published out of a Chicago regional office for an upstate New York publisher, one suspects that their overworked surveyors were entitled to a mistake once in a while.
Yesterday's post about the Menasha Boat Company also continues here. The large master map, located above, shows that map sheet no. 9 is required to view the Menasha Boat Company. The first illustration is an extract from map sheet no. 9 showing that company's location on the no longer existent Prospect Street, just north of Third.
Sanborn Maps are available for your review via the Wisconsin Historical Society's web site as well as the Library of Congress. They are well worth your time.
