This unique database was started in November 2015 to help WPL better serve our customers. As library staff answer customer questions about our local history, we post our research on-line to share with everyone. This is an ongoing project. We add biographies on a regular basis and by no means is this an exhaustive list of individuals who have been associated with the area, but it is a start.
