From Waukesha Patch:
History books about our area are replete with the men who made Waukesha famous, from spring prospectors like Col. Dunbar, musicians like Les Paul or politicians like Gov. William Barstow.
What is somewhat lacking, though, is information about Waukesha’s founding mothers, the women who helped make Waukesha what it is today.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, let’s consider a few women from different eras and walks of life who were important to our fair city.
