Happy Fourth of July weekend and #FlashbackFriday from the Whitewater Historical Society!
In 1907, city and college officials planned a “Home Coming” celebration on July 4-7 in an effort to spur economic interest and rekindle a sense of community spirit. Invitations were sent out throughout the country to anyone who had previously lived or worked in Whitewater. Over 2000 former residents attended the festivities. This image of the Home Coming parade shows the north side of Main Street looking eastwards.
