In 1959, the Waukesha Freeman newspaper published a Centennial Edition of their paper which started in 1859. The Centennial Edition celebrated the history of their coverage of Waukesha county and the many towns and villages that grew here. Parts of the Centennial Edition were published each week for several weeks in 1959, along with their regular weekly edition. It’s fun to look back at the development, growth and history of Waukesha county, and read of what the pioneers endured as they moved to the area.
Over the next months, we will retell some of the stories of our past. All articles were printed in the Waukesha Freeman Centennial Edition.
