Schenk-Huegel Family History from Downtown Dailies on Vimeo.


A few scenes from a new video history of the Schenk's Corners and the Schenk-Huegel family, by filmmaker Gretta Wing-Miller and historian Ann Waidlich.

Presented by Sue Retzlaff, the great-granddaughter of Fred and Wilhelmina Schenk, who built the first building on the intersection of Atwood and Winnebago streets in Madison Wisconsin.
The film traces the history of both the family and the building from the mid-19th century through the present.
