    Hi,

    I’m writing a book about my family’s service during World War II and part of the story is about my Dad who was in the CCC. I remember him mentioning Honeycreek Parkway and the UW Extension. Do you have any other information on the project, photos, or can you direct me to other sources?

    Thanks very much,
    Mary Baewer

      Unfortunately, we don’t have more on our site. But you may want to pursue the source we use for our Honey Creek Parkway entry: Lois M.

    The description (“North Avenue to Church Street”) is describing the Menominee Parkway, not the Honey Creek Parkway. Which is it?

      Thank you for pointing this out. We’ve edited the page to indicate that improvements were made on both parkways.

  3. I’m looking for photos from the 60’s or earlier of the old Honey Creek before it was re-routed and buried.
    Thanks
