History Program-Life in Neenah’s Progressive Era

Horse drawn carriage

So much of what we still enjoy in our community today had its start during what is known as the Progressive Era. Join the Neenah Historical Society to discover, “Life in Neenah’s Progressive Era” presented by Professor Steven Sheehan of UW-Fox Valley. In early May, the Society will be opening its newest exhibit, Making a Hometown – Life in Neenah’s Progressive Era. This hands-on, interactive exhibition will feature the story of how Neenah’s industrial leaders in the late 19th and early 20th centuries worked together with community building organizations to create the hometown we still enjoy today. Professor Sheehan will give an overview of some of the amazing things we’ve discovered about Neenah’s story during this time period.

The history programs are sponsored by the Neenah Historical Society and co-sponsored by the Neenah Public Library.
