The Cedarburg Cultural Center was honored to be the repository of over 1,800 photos collected by native son, Edward Rappold. This collection forms the foundation of our growing photo archives.
Thanks to Ed, we can immerse ourselves in life during a bygone era when America grew from an immigrant nation to an industrial power. The collection includes images of stagecoaches to homemade automobiles. It celebrates leisure, entrepreneurship, family and education in rural America
