Geographical and statistical history of the county of Winnebago ... to which is prefixed a general view of the state of Wisconsin, together with a census table from its first settlement to the present time.
Oshkosh [Wis.]: Mitchel and Smith, 1856
120, 6 p. : incl. ill., ports. ; 18 cm.

This is the first history of Winnebago County ever compiled. As the county had a population of 135 in 1840 and 17,439 in 1855, this covers a period of extremely rapid growth. The authors were able to consult with many of the original settlers. They describe the land and native vegetation, list first settlers, and note the current industries, churches and schools.
