This site has been created by the Kimberly-Little Chute Public Library as part of the Centennial celebration of the Village of Kimberly, Wisconsin during the year 2010.

The photographs included on the site are a part of the Library's history collection. We have very little information about the photos, who took them, and what is pictured in them, so our hope is that people familiar with the subjects of the photos will post comments to help fill out the stories of our past.

We would also like to post oral histories of Kimberly community members. If you would like to participate in the project by sharing your favorite memory of life in the village, please contact Library Director, Beth Carpenter, at 920-788-7515 or bcarpent [at]

Join us in celebrating the Centennial of the Village of Kimberly by sharing your stories, memories, and recollections!
