We have the opportunity to be shown the new building, which has an impressive space of 189,730 square feet.

State Archive Preservation Facility

Following this incredible opportunity to have a peek into the amazing archives held in this new facility, the FRIENDS will be having lunch at the Thirsty Goat in Fitchburg. The restaurant has great food and drinks, but even better is that 15% of the total spent by us at lunch will be donated to our very own FHWS!


Join us for a morning of learning about the preservation of Wisconsin’s history and celebrating the ability to aid these efforts through your support.

Please RSVP with names and phone numbers of those planning to attend to Patricia Lawler Layde at aa.fwhs@gmail.com or 414-254-9135.
