Old Bridge

The original bridge coming into New Lisbon about 1930. 

A Glimpse Down Division

A peak down Division Street some time in the early 1900s. You can see the streets are still only dirt and the sidewalks were created with boards to protects the women's skirts from the mud.

City Park

The City Park in New Lisbon, now known as Heritage Park was a great place to gather with friends when I was young. In the background, you can see the band shelter where many concerts took place. The cannon in the foreground was a great picture opportunity for those that visited the park. In this photo you can see the cannon balls are still on display. 

New Lisbon Depot


Here is a photo of the depot in New Lisbon. Not sure how many of you remember the depot, but I sure do. As a child, I would walk to the depot and watch the trains come in. My friends and I would love to place a coin on the tracks and watch the train flatten it. Simple times. Great memories. What are yours?
