A HISTORY OF NEENAH The petition that gained for Neenah its first sewer system. Residents whose homes or businesses fronted on Wisconsin Avenue petitioned the city fathers in April i88i for permission to lay a sewer line down the avenue, under the C.&N.W. tracks, and emptying into Little Lake Buttes des Morts. The property owners benefiting from this utility were, of course, obligated to pay the cost thereof. It is interesting to note that this sewer line was laid twelve years before Neenah had a city water system. 43'2
