New exhibit shows stories of Marathon County


A new exhibit is now open involving the stories of Marathon County.

The permanent exhibit was on display Saturday at the Marathon County Historical Society. Organizers say it goes all the way back to the beginning, from those who first came here, those who work here, and those who just have fun here.

"We look at the stories of the people,” said Christine Martens of the historical society. “The stories of people that you may know the names of, street names and such, and absolutely the stories of the people you don't know the names of."

The exhibit is also interactive. Organizers say almost everything on display was donated.
