The Marathon County Historical Society will present “Rural Electrification in Central Wisconsin” as its next History Speaks topic at 2 pm Sunday, April 30, 2017, at the Woodson History Center, 410 McIndoe St., Wausau.
Federal and state advancements brought electricity to the rural areas of central Wisconsin in the first half of the 20th century, forever changing the way people lived and worked. Gary Gisselman will trace the developments that opened the way for electrification outside the cities.
There is no admission fee; however, donations are appreciated. Registration is not required.
The Historical Society is grateful to Janke Book Store and to Compass Properties for their sponsorship of the History Speaks series.
