Trempealeau Municipal Improvements

-As transcribed from page 896

Trempealeau Village was incorporated in the pioneer days.  All records were lost in the fire of 1888.

The village was reincorporated March 10, 1900, and A. H. Hoberton elected president and F. L. Fields, W. Stauge and Thomas Bohen as trustees.  W. A. Bright is the present president, and C. S.  Ford, Ed. Davis, Alfred Kutchera and W. A. Graves as trustees.

The village owns the village hall, which is used for general village purposes, and the electric light plant.  The hall was purchased from the W. C. T. U. and had previously been used as a reading room.  The electric light service, which is secured by tapping the lines between the Hatfield Dam and Winona, was installed July 4, 1915.  Before this the streets were lighted with kerosene lamps on corner posts.

The village part was platted for its present purpose when the surrounding lots were laid out.  The band stand therein was erected about 1888 through the efforts of Dr. C. H. Cutter, and the members of the band here at that time.
