Marker Hunt

A lot of history is resident in the Fox Valley, as evidenced back in 1964 during this "marker hunt."  These pages illustrated Menasha's contribution to the many markers and monuments that commemorate the important happenings around the state.  Multiply that by hundreds of communities across Wisconsin and I can see how an accurate rendering of the tally was necessary.  I believe most of these can still be seen today, though I fear for the future of the Wisconsin Central plaque that once was attached to the Hotel Menasha.
