Prairie du Chien: A Historical Study,
WISCONSIN STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY MADISON
Pagination or Media Count:
A literature and record search for locations of prehistoric and historic sites in the Prairie du Chien area was undertaken by the Wisconsin State Historical Society. A search was made to assess the cultural resources present on St. Friole Island and the adjacent mainland in the City of Prairie du Chien. The assessment was necessary because of Army Corps of Engineer plans to remove and relocate residents of the floodplain area. Since removal or destruction of residences can destroy or partially destroy archaeological-historical sites, it was deemed necessary to locate and evaluate such sites. Eighteen areas where prehistoric archeological sites were located, that are considered significant for understanding the cultural history of Prairie du Chien. It is recommended that all of St. Friole Island or at least portions of it, be made a historic district , and that portions of the mainland be included in the district.
