I moved to De Pere with my wife and daughters from southern California in the summer of 1997. I launched this website that same summer as a way to learn more about our great city and to provide info for other curious minds. The internet has changed a lot since then. A lot. The city is pretty good with their website these days. Other related organizations are also out there promoting De Pere, good people like Definitely De Pere, De Pere Historical Society, and De Pere Area Chamber of Commerce, And of course the technology itself has changed significantly. So I've changed too.
I served on the De Pere City Council from 2012 to 2020, so I changed the focus of this site just a bit during those 8 years. In 2014, after 17 years, I dumped the old site and rebuilt it from the ground up. In 2020, I dumped the site again and started playing around with some new stuff. Sometimes I'm just testing new technology, other times I'm just playing around with new content.
And here we are. It's 2024. I've added my post card collection, along with a few other cool tidbits. After 27 years, I hope the site is still just a little interesting. If you're looking for info about De Pere that you're just not finding anywhere, hit me up, perhaps I can help.
