Overview


La Crosse, Wisconsin, a Midwestern town with Midwestern sensibilities, is located in the western part of the state, on the Mississippi River. In the

twentieth century, La Crosse has seen all of the same changes that the rest of the United States has

experienced--two world wars, depression, natural disasters, the emergence of the automobile, great technological advances, and the day-to-day family existence that has defined small-town America. In this new addition to the Images of America series, the La Crosse County Historical Society has drawn from its wonderful collection of historic images to offer readers a glimpse into the area's past. Even if you did not grow up in La Crosse, you will recognize these scenes from everyday life that are a part of us all.
