There is a fantastic treasure of Beloit History documents, photos, etc. at the Beloit College History Archives in the Morse College Library. They cover the history of the city of Beloit, Wisconsin, as well the College – businesses, restaurants, Under-Ground Railroad, area documents, historic photographs, etc.

Here is a link to their Beloit History Archive Collection Index.

Sounds like a tour for our Stateline Genealogy  Club @ Beloit Public Library next year.  We are all scheduled up for tours in 2017.

There is no way that Beloit Public Library can hold as many local history documents, but I try to continuously add to our Genealogy/Local History Collection here.

The Archivist Fred Burwell is very helpful, and we have done some collaborative work.

Here is a link to their hours, and location.   Or you can see a lot by looking at the Beloit College Archives website.
