Eau Claire (WQOW) - The Wisconsin Historical Society selected Eau Claire's L.E. Phillips Memorial Library as a location for its newest traveling exhibit.
The exhibit will stay in the library through May 30. It will feature fun facts, like the history of happy hour and the roots of your family from May 12 through May 16.
The Chippewa Valley Museum and UW-Eau Claire's Research Center helped provide localized history for a glance back into the Chippewa Valley's past.
The Historical Society has been collecting data since 1846, two years before Wisconsin reached statehood.
"This is a chance to learn more about those efforts at the statewide level, and what's happening locally," Janet Seymour, with the Wisconsin Historical Society, said. "There's something for everyone. There is a session on genealogy, archaeology. There's several authors who will be coming to talk about their books that focus on Wisconsin history and the history of the Chippewa Valley."
