Full house for Kids History Day

How did people live before electricity came to make life easier?

Has a storm knocked our your family's electrical power? What was that like? Have you ever thought about how people lived BEFORE electricity could power lights, refrigerators, machines, and entertainment systems?

The Marathon County Historical Society hosted two dozen upper-elementary and middle school-age children for Kids History Day on Thursday, August 17, 2017, from 10 am to 2 pm.

The children learned how people in Wisconsin lived during the 1920s to 1940s, before electricity and many of our modern conveniences became available in rural areas.
