Kaukauna History Block
Ink sketch of Wisconsin public school, opened in 1828 in Kaukauna -- as imagined by the artist. This school was started by Electa Quinney, Wisconsin's first public school teacher. She was a Stockbridge-Munsee Indian woman who was professionally trained to be a teacher, and she taught Native American and white students at her school. In the foreground is the oldest white ash tree in the state of Wisconsin.
This is an ink sketch of the Kaukauna Public Library before the 1976 addition. This building was built through a Carnegie Grant that was received in 1902. According to the Wisconsin Register of Historic Places, the library's construction date was 1905; it was originally known as the Free Public Library of Kaukauna.
