The village’s Wolf River Crossing Park has an addition.
It is a two-sided pictorial view display case that features pictures of the early years on the Wolf River, representing river boats, logging, fishing and more.
The Fremont Area Historical Society dedicated the display case, which is located at the Indian crossing in the park, next to the public boat ramp.
A 1967 historical landmark plaque and bench are also in the park, compliments of the historical society.
Funding for the new display came from the historical society and the community’s 1976 Bicentennial committee.
Shirley Drews and Mel Maierhafer were members of that committee and attended the dedication ceremony, along with Joyce Kensman Lankford and Ann Sheburn Mathwig.
Lankford is the descendant of an early pioneer, and Mathwig’s grandfather was a captain on one of the river boats.
The pictures in the display case will be removed during the winter months.
