An Index for the book:
"Burlington, Wisconsin
The First 150+ Years 1835 -1990"
cover
"For the Burlington Centennial observation in 1935, Francis Meurer, with Augusta Zwiebel aiding in research, compiled a history which has been used as source material for the first units of this book. In this year of 1990, he has revised and enlarged that history. Don Reed, then president of the Burlington Historical Society, has researched and written the growth and development of the city for the period 1935 to 1990.Material in the book comes from various documents in possession of the Historical Society, from newspaper accounts and from the memories of some long-time residents. It is not meant to be an official historical record, merely a gathering of many of the incidents and events that took place from the 1830's to 1990 which the authors hope is informative, has some educational value and is entertaining. City of Burlington Mayors, the Postmasters, and the church histories and pastors were updated to 1990. Official census figures since 1900, when Burlington became a city, were added. Histories of businesses who submitted information were also included.Presented by the Burlington Historical Society, Glenn L. Hintz Family and Hi-Liter Graphics, Inc."
