Waukesha, WI

PO Waukesha WI

Waukesha was once known as “the Saratoga of the West” for its healing springs, but they were polluted or dried up. Also known for the first legal forward pass thrown in college football (1906). This postcard shows the Waukesha Post Office in the Nickell Building on the corner of Main and Clinton (built in 1901 and now home to The Steaming Cup of Downtown Waukesha).
