The Maude Shunk Local History Room hosts a collection of historical materials from the Menomonee Falls area. Among the collection are photographs of the area, local Church histories and cemetery listings, and local histories about Wisconsin, Southwest Wisconsin, Milwaukee and Menomonee Falls. There are genealogical materials such as “Passenger and Immigration Lists Index,” as well as other indexes and publications more local to Menomonee Falls. The local history room also has copies of the Menomonee Falls High School Yearbooks. To see a list of our entire historical collection, click here.
