I didn't start vacationing in Wisconsin Dells until 1987. When I arrived Fort Dells was, to me, little more than an abandoned attraction. These days The Dells is like my second home, I'm there most every weekend and for a full week in July. I greatly appreciate the Friends of Fort Dells for keeping the memory of the Fort alive. I've learned something of the history of Wisconsin Dells that I would not have otherwise known. Thank you.

I do scrapbooking. When my grandmother passed away, my mom gave me a huge RubberMaid tub full of almost 10,000 pictures. I found pictures of the one trip my grandmother took me on to Fort Dells. The dates on the pictures are July 11-12, 1966. The 335 foot tower was new then. Talk about wonderful memories!

I work at then Fort during summers 1960 through 1963. Parking cars with Jerry Nichols at first than moving up to taking tickets in the morning with Carol Schultz. In the afternoon I cleaned toilets the entranceway and other odd jobs. These were the best days of my young life. The workers at the Fort were the best people I ever had the privilege of working with. I remember a better time in the 60s when Wisconsin Dells was more of a family place than todays plastic imitation of Las Vegas without the Fort.

A few of us are back for Wo Zwa Wa days celebrating that Fort Dells closed 30 years ago! I was a cowgirl greeter for many years!

I worked at Fort Dells the summers of 1960-63. Worked in the parking lot the first summer and took tickets at the front gate the other years. It may be me taking tickets in your home page picture. The figure is obscured, but that is where I stood, and the picture appears to have been taken during my time there.
