"History of Trempealeau County Wisconsin, 1917":

Chapter 11:


-As transcribed from page 254

Trempealeau is located in the southern part of the county, and spreads along the banks of the Mississippi under the shadows of the overhanging bluffs and back a mile across the prairie to the depot of the Northwestern Railroad, which with the Burlington supplies its railroad service.

The story of the village since its settlement in 1842 has already been told.

Trempealeau now has a village hall, electric light service, a village park, a bank, a newspaper, a public library, and several elevators.

The shipments are farm products, fish and lime.

The present organization of the village dates from March 10, 1900, when the old pioneer village government was reincorporated along modern lines.
