City Directories

The first city directory for La Crosse was published in 1866. Until 1922, wives' names were not listed unless she worked outside the home. This list of digitized resources represents a sampling, as the city directory was published every other year or so. Both La Crosse Public Library Archives and Murphy Library Special Collections have complete sets in paper. Please contact either library for more information.
