A HISTORY OF SHIOCTON WISCONSIN

This is a history of Shiocton, written by Harriet Wilkinson, edited by Francis Gunderson. It was published in the Hortonville Star in 1967 and 1968. (This history is being republished here with permission of the New London Press Star Newspaper.)

This undertaking took Mrs. Wilkinson many years to put together and required the coordination and assistance of Mrs. Gunderson to complete and publish it. To keep it as original as possible, the chapters were scanned from the original papers.

Each chapter is a separate htm file and can be viewed by clicking on the chapter title in the list below. In order to return to this page to continuing viewing other chapters, use the back button on your browser. There are also navigation buttons at the bottom of each chapter that will allow you to go from one chapter to the chapters that preceed or follow it.

This is by far the most extensive and inclusive history ever written of Shiocton. We hope that by publising it here, it will bring back old memories to some, and bring a new understanding and appreciation for this town's history for others.
