Prior to the closing of the 1931 LHS / East Junior High School building, Sandy Nugent made poster boards outlining each of the decades in its history.
Until the Museum closes for the season in September, the boards from 1930 through the late 1970s will be on display.
If you were unable to attend the Open Houses, please stop down and enjoy her hard work.
LHS posters at East Jr. High now at Museum for public viewing
Saturday July 21, 2018
Six beautiful gardens in Wisconsin Rapids will be featured. Six local artists will display their talents and offer their creations for sale. Our artists and artisans this year include a beekeeper offering premium honey from local sources, beeswax skin products and handmade soaps; locally harvested maple syrup; painters of canvas, porcelain, even, deer skulls; photographers; and beaded jewelry. Art in the Garden Boutique will offer gently used garden items, books, and magazines as well as new, hand made garden art and accessories.
Tickets are available from any Wood County Master Gardener Volunteer, at each featured garden the day of the walk, including the South Wood County Historical Museum.
Another awesome local history magazine: Artifacts #53 from the South Wood County Historical Museum.
But beware page 15.
The photo at top does not show the vocational addition as stated—but 1931 Lincoln High School being built. Behind it stands not the Witter school but, in its last days, the 1903 Lincoln building, also pictured on p. 13.
