La Crosse County Historical Society discovers, collects, preserves, and shares the history of La Crosse County, Wisconsin.
Coming Summer 2019
On June 4, 2019 our new exhibition "Juxtapose" will open in the Swarthout Gallery at the La Crosse Public Library. This exhibition will feature dresses and other clothing worn in La Crosse between the 1850s and 1960s. You will learn the stories of local women, both prominent and unknown, as we "juxtapose" these articles of clothing with present-day images of the places these women lived and worked. Time will collapse, and they will enter our world as we go back in time to explore theirs.
