On the Square

July 19, 1967, Oshkosh Northwestern

I don't remember seeing too many ads for Menasha Furniture in my research, but this building nevertheless had a long and storied history at its location on the corner of Milwaukee and Chute streets.  In its many incarnations, it was a dry goods store, the first location for the city's public library, a movie theater, and finally a furniture store.  Over the years, the upstairs offices headquartered businesses as diverse as attorneys and even a radio station.
