The Ozaukee County Local History Collection provides a window into the history and development of Ozaukee County. Whether published over 100 years ago or more recently, the selected material is focused on the history of the area, often stems from personal and civic efforts to document and promote local communities, and offers a broad range of topics. Topics include personal reminiscences of growing up in Ozaukee County, reflections of local residents who served during wartime, histories of various local communities, and histories of public services and groups in those communities, including fire departments and a woman’s club. Some of the titles date as far back as 1835, with a significant amount covering the 19th century through the first half of the 20th century. (From the UWDC website)
