Welcome to the Crandon Area Local History Archives

The Crandon Public Library Local History Room is a unique and valuable resource for Forest County researchers. The Crandon Public Library and the Crandon Area Historical Society have been working together since 2013 to preserve some of Forest County's most precious historical documents and photos to guarantee these resources are protected now and into the future. These records make up a large percentage of what is now the Crandon Area Local History Archives website.

This archives website allows students, researchers and community members to view our historical collections from any internet computer. Currently the site contains over 400 fully searchable records and photos with many, many more being scanned and digitized by staff and volunteers of the Crandon Area Historical Society.

If you are interested in helping with this project, or would like more information about the records, please contact Michelle at 715-478-7797 or forestctyhistory@gmail.com
