CGAHS is a group of dedicated volunteers who collect, preserve and share information about the history of the town and village of Cottage Grove through real objects, photographs, and paper and digital records of land abstracts, records, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings, obituaries, etc. What do you have to share with us?
The society's history room contains archives and a study area located in the lower level of Flynn Hall, at 116 W. Reynolds Street, Cottage Grove. The history room is open during meetings, the Lions Club Hog Day Breakfast and occasionally when other events are being held in the building. It is also open by appointment.
CGAHS has almost 6,000 photographs of Cottage Grove people, places and events in its photograph collection. We are combining some of them with text and sharing them in print. Copies of the reports have been placed in Monona Grove School IMCs; Monona, Pinney (Madison), and Sun Prairie Libraries; the Wisconsin Historical Society, and Dane County Historical Society Archives. Copies may be purchased at the Cottage Grove Town Hall (mornings M-F), School Grounds Cafe, or by contacting Terry Strand at (608-222-4946) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
