Fond du Lac Reporter: Library archives turn up a treasure trove of history rediscovered during pandemic

Fond du Lac Reporter: Library archives turn up a treasure trove of history rediscovered during pandemic. “Old records and leather-bound volumes chronicling Fond du Lac’s past were put aside years ago, tucked away for safekeeping when everyday tasks that need attention at the library took precedence. Those forgotten treasures, stored away in the archives at Fond du Lac Public Library, were rediscovered in the throes of a global pandemic, among them hand-illustrated plat books from the 1800s, old tourist travel maps, long-forgotten funeral home records of early settlers and photographs of the county fair from the turn of the century.”
