Wilbert, Carl F. / History of the town of Mequon

Mequon - 1870 - 1957


Mequon -e1870 - 1957

some of the many interesting adventures and happenings
as they experienced them or discovered some record
left by someone preseeding them, such as letters,
documents, etc. Some of these were compiled by the
first two gentlemen and put together in history form.
The latest of such histories was compiled by Walter D.
Corrigan with the help of many'rothers.  This history was
sponsored by the Mequon Club as a ciVic enterprise.

the history of Mequon was compiled by Walter D. Corrigan
Sr. to the time Mequon was incorporated as a City of the
fourth class, May 24, 1957. For these 30years, 187O to
1900, 1 have to rely on the records found recorded in
municipal documents, records, and memorandums made by
a number of prominent men, etc. From the year 1900.
