The History of The Sovereign State of Winneconne


Plea for Help

Vera Kitchen, president of the Chamber, fired off a letter of protest to Governor Warren P. Knowles:


“Dear Sir, We would like to call your attention to the omission of Winneconne on the new 1967 official Wisconsin highway map, published by the State Highway Commission. As a small community, we do a great amount of advertising for Winneconne and Wisconsin, which you undoubtedly know. If something can be done to correct the 1967 map, we would greatly appreciate your efforts.”
