Wilbert, Carl F. / History of the town of Mequon
([ca. 1990?])

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.
