Focus on Local History: Virtual Event
Each month, join local historian Gavin Schmitt (and the occasional guest speaker) on Facebook to learn about a piece of Kaukauna or Wisconsin history. The sharing of memories is strongly encouraged, and proposals for future topics are welcome.
January: Epworth House. We will discuss a local religious organization that kept women and children active in civics and their community. Also, Prohibition!
February: Act 31. What is Act 31? Who were the people in Northeast Wisconsin who created it? And why is it important.
March: Women's History Month / Electa Quinney. Who was Quinney? Why do we have a school named after her? Why is there a statue in Fassbender Park?
April: National Library Week. We talk about how the "Carnegie building" came to be, and the people who made it happen.
