Meet the Author

Mark Wilson Scarborough, whose maternal family has lived in rural Edgerton since the 1850s, has collected images and stories about his hometown for more than four decades. These photographs and tales serve as the main source of materials for this book. After a 34-year career working as a writer for newspapers around Wisconsin, Scarborough now works as a journalist and photographer for the Edgerton Reporter. His 150th birthday book for an Adams County, Wisconsin, town (There's No Place Like Rome) was published in 2007. Holding degrees in journalism and history, Scarborough was the youngest-ever trustee of the Rock County Historical Society and a founding member of Edgerton's Sterling North Society.
