Bird's-eye views of Wisconsin cities and towns

Bird's-eye views of 180 Wisconsin cities and towns


Wisconsin Historical Images, our online collection of visual materials, contains more than 10,000 photographs, engravings, posters, and other pictures. The link below will display 180 bird's-eye views from the late 19th to the early 20th century.

See if your town or city is included.
