Wilbert, Carl F. / History of the town of Mequon
Mequon - 1870 - 1957
records of the Town Clerk dating back to the first town meeting in 1846, which office I held for 25 years, 1932 to 1957. No office space having been provided by the Town for their officials, all records of their respective offices were kept in private homes of the officials then in office. All records, minute books (the first town meeting was held in 1846) and prior thereto, were placed in a vault built in the first town hall in 1936. Most of the old records were found by me in an old machinery storage shed owned by the Town, others, as time went on and after diligent search, were found in some homes. While I am not a historian or a knowledgable writer, I have tried to give you accurate information of the events and happenings within the Town of Mequon (including the Village of Thiensville, which was an integral part of Mequon up to Oct. 11, 1910, the date of their incorpora- tion as a village) and up to 1960 in an unbiased or prejudicial way. I hope that this humble effort on my part will be of some public good. Carl F. Wilbert Former Clerk and Mayor Emeritus of the City of Mequon.
