Early Settlements

This map from the book, Prairies, Pines, and People: Winnebago County in a New Perspective (1976) shows the Lake Winnebago area in the days before formal settlements were established with the names we know all too well.  Note the many Indian villages, to include the one on Doty Island.  It wouldn't be too many years after the original publication of this map that major changes would occur to shape the area and make it more recognizable to modern eyes.
