Join Joe and Patti Yana of the Butte des Morts Historical Preservation Society as they discuss the history of Butte Des Morts, Wis. in the library's Lower Level Meeting Room.
This small town on a hill with a panoramic view holds the lore and legends of the rugged pioneers who founded it. Fur traders like Augustin Grignon saw this strategic location as a gateway to regional trade. Learn about the hotels, taverns, and even a brewery that made Butte des Morts a bustling little town with its own school and church. The rise of the community and the grit of its founders and residents is a story of the American dream which became reality.
Presented in partnership with the Winnebagoland Genealogical Society.
