Greater Onalask Heritage Society


While the building is known officially as the "First Baptist Church", through its early years it served many purposes. Both Baptist and Methodist Congregations used the facility until the Methodists build their own meeting place and from the photo on our home page, it is clear that it served as the early school for the children of the area.

Onalaska conducted a sesquicentennial project and was able to reproduce over thirty photographs from the 1900-1930's and place them as a collection, on the walls of our library. Many visitors have remarked that their grandparents and other relatives have tolds stories abut life in early Onalaska. It is with this proud heritage already in place that the Heritage Society seeks to gather active members and support to continueguarding the past in effort to bring knowledge and pride to this end future residents. Wont you please come join us in this program?
