About the Collection

Chippewa, Dunn, Eau Claire, Pepin, St. Croix, and Rusk Counties: Local History Collections

This collection showcases selections from the local history collections of 14 West-Central and Northwestern Wisconsin public libraries. These libraries, and many other Indianhead Federated Library System member libraries, serve as repositories for important local history documents. The Indianhead Federated Library System is comprised of 53 member public libraries in the region.

The collection contains texts (including community records, local history narratives and retrospectives, high school yearbooks, and maps) and images of community sites, events, and residents.
