WISCONSIN HOMETOWN STORIES

Juneau County - Camp Douglas History

  • Aired: 04/17/2014
  • 07:47
  • Rating: TV-G
James Douglas established a lumber cutting camp to supply wood-burning locomotives. As a railroad crossroads, Camp Douglas grew into a thriving village. Just north of town, the Wisconsin National Guard bought land for a training camp. Camp Douglas was hit hard by the Great Depression, school consolidation, and big chain stores, but perseveres with a spirit of community.
