The Bonduel Community Archives was founded in 1991 and has been gathering local business and family history since our beginnings. Often when Grandma and Grandpa pass away, the children are left with a life-time of photographs and documents they do not know what to do with. The BCA is interested in obtaining these bits of local history. We could copy them if you wish to keep them, or you can donate them for perpetual care. Photographs and documents are all archived in acid-free sleeves safe from light and moisture and safe for succeeding generations who may be interested in knowing what their ancestors looked like and how they lived their lives.

Some of our resources include church records, Shawano County plat maps, 1909-1971 Bonduel Times newspapers, family histories, school censuses, an extensive collection of photographs, obituaries, cemetery records, naturalization records and books written by local authors.

The BCA features a changing photo display of different businesses, churches, schools and other themes. These photographs and stories represent the archive's sizable collection.

The BCA newsletter, "The Historian," is issued four times a year. Stories and photographs from the archive collections are featured in these newsletters. It is the only local historical newsletter published in this area.

The BCA is a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers and funded through memberships, donations, the sale of its newsletter and fund-raising activities. We are always in need of volunteers. If you are interested in doing something to benefit generations to come, please call 715-758-2687 Wednesdays or Saturday. We would like to hear of your interests and give you a tour of our facility.
