Hello!

In honor of Labor Day, we're celebrating the working men and women of Wisconsin. Over the years, we’ve featured a blacksmith, Wisconsin’s first female brewmaster, an ironworker as well as other dedicated labors of love.

Feeling the need for a little perspective? Check out this piece by Milwaukee historian John Gurda on working conditions for iron mill workers in 19th century Milwaukee.

We are also gearing up for a new season of the Wisconsin Life TV show with our host Angela Fitzgerald. To get you ready, we thought we'd quiz you on some of the locations we've visited this summer. Find out how well you know Wisconsin by taking the quiz below!
