    Wildwood Wisconsin Token

    A friend found this token in Chippewa Falls in a street tear-up. The town was from 1882 to 1899. I believe it is a ghost town site and might not be in the Wisconsin State Token book. Checking the google map and then going to satellite view shows it is north of a farm. Well hope to see what folks think of it.

    A post office called Wildwood was established in 1882, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1899. The community was named from a virgin forest surrounding the original town site.Click image for larger version.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Among other ventures, McKay was a director of the Minnesota and Wisconsin RxR in 1893. That RxR ran 26 miles north from Spring Valley to Emerald, Wisconsin. Wildwood was about 3-4 miles NNW of Spring Valley.
    Also, theWisconsin state gazetteer and business directory (Volume 1891-92 pt.3) shows that McKay did have a General Store in those years.

    The 1˘ and 5˘ tokens from this merchant are in the Trade Tokens of Wisconsin book, but not this one. The 1˘ one is on tokencatalog. Please post this one on tokencatalog, or, with permission to use the pics, I'd be happy to post them.

    Idaho you can get the permission from Kenny on facebook Ground View Metal Detector Sales & Rental. He found the token, and I am pretty sure he would not have issue of you using the image.
