Neenah Wisconsin History

A thunderstorm that moved through Wisconsin as a strong cold front created severe weather. A thunderstorm front tore down the roof of a barn, tore down numerous trees and power lines and blew a pickup off the road as the storm moved east to west through the city of Green Bay and in Brown County, Wisconsin. A brief tornado hit GreenBay near Brown Co. causing tree damage.

This was the first round of severe weather as a line of intense thunderstorms moved across Walworth, Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha counties. In southern central and southeastern Wisconsin, eight tornadoes on June 23 set the record of 11 on May 8, 1988, the fourth highest total in a single day. On June 22, 16 tornadoes were documented in Wisconsin, with the record set on May 9, 2008, and the all-time high set on July 1, 2009, at 24.

The original system initially did not include US 141, but early plans did indeed require US 41 to enter the state. However, it appears that it was part of the Interstate Highway System at the time of the final US highway system's commissioning.

At the Illinois State Line, the present STH 142 replaced the existing CTH - W, which used to run along the line of the STH-50 state lines. US 41 was turned south due to the STh 43, and Appleton achieved the status of a highway train by removing the intersection. The former US41 route, which was simultaneously designated US 10 and Wisconsin Ave as the eastern Badger Ave bypass, retained the designation US 10 until local control was returned to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation in the mid-1990s. This became an extension of StH 114, while the northern part of Wisconsin Avenue between Wisconsin and the southern border of the state with Illinois became an extension of StH 47.

Also in 1961 the first section of the stadium motorway was opened as STH 59, and the construction work lasted until 1883. Although this part of US 41 had not yet been signed, it should soon be, with the construction of StH 114 and the opening of a new section of Wisconsin Avenue. He was commissioned to design some notable homes in the area, such as St. John's Episcopal Church in Appleton, as well as a number of churches in Wisconsin and Illinois.

During this time, Neenah's role in the Wisconsin paper industry began and culminated in the founding of the Kimberly-Clark Corporation in 1872. The company, based in Lincoln, Nebraska, was responsible for the production of paper products such as paper towels, paper clips and cardboard. The first paper mill in North America, Kimberly Clark Paper Company, was founded in 1872 in Neeniah and quickly became the largest paper and paper producer in Wisconsin.

The company built and opened a new office and warehouse in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, further highlighting the importance of Neenah's role in the production of paper and paper products in North America. In addition to the Kimberly - Clark Paper Company paper mill, Neanah Foundry also operated regional sales offices, distribution centers and a large distribution center in Wisconsin.

It opened its doors in August 1915 as a modern facility that included an office building, factory and warehouse for the Kimberly - Clark Paper Company. In 1929, the land Helen and Kimberly Stuart gave to the town of Neenah, to call it Kimberly Point Park, was built on the Fox River and Lake Winnebago. A decade later, Kimberly's family offered to build a functioning lighthouse on the site, then known as Kimberly Point Park, but the plans were interrupted by the outbreak of World War II.

Three years later, in 2012, the city's Landmarks Commission received a grant from the Wisconsin Historical Society, which put the lighthouse on the Wisconsin State Register of Historic Places. A book titled "Wisconsin's Own Twenty Remarkable Homes," published by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Center for Historic Preservation, features more than 1,000 historic buildings in the state, most of them in Wisconsin.

Five videos document the historical sewer artifacts at the Neenah Foundry in Neeniah and five videos document the history of the city's historic buildings in the past, present and future. Five videos document the historical shafts and artifacts in and around the NEENAH foundry and its historic building.

The Neenah Historical Society of Wisconsin will be featured in its multimedia exhibition titled "Take the Cover of Neenah. The historical channel artifacts of the NEENAH Foundry and its historic buildings will be displayed by the Historical Society in a free multimedia exhibition entitled "Off the Cover of the New York Times" and "Cover Take off from Neensah," which will be on view on Sundays for the next two months. The Neanah History Society in Wisconsin, the Historical Association of North Dakota, and the National Archives and Records Administration of Minnesota and Minnesota will present the well-preserved items found in a local Fallout Shelter in their multimedia exhibit, "Fallout Shelter."
