Public Library, Appleton, WI


The City of Appleton constructed its first municipal building at 121 S. Oneida Street for a total of $25,000. The building, dedicated March 28, 1900, housed the Library on the main floor and City Hall on the second. In 1939, the city offices moved out, giving the Library much-needed space. Eventually, after the State condemned part of the building, an extensive remodeling project was undertaken in 1954. [Thanks to the APL,]
