Our 2019-20 Project!
Our current project is focusing on the coming of the Interstate Highway System to Wisconsin and the impact this had on the Black River Falls region. The I-System was the largest infrastructure program in American history and changed the nation in dramatic ways. The final stretch of the nearly 350 miles of I-94 in Wisconsin was the segment running from Tomah to Black River Falls and was completed in the late months of 1968.
Senior Intern Sam Lund will be serving as our 20th FHP Intern and developing this project. Sam is an alumni of our AP US History program and a devoted student of history. He will begin work in earnest on the project in spring semester.
