HISTORICAL MARKER
 In 1835, just west of this marker, Hippolyte Grignon, the first white settler in what was to become Appleton, built a log house known as "White Heron" with two attached wings for a trading post and quarters for travelers. Within the walls of the log house, Father Florimond Bonduel, a Belfian Priest, celebrated the first mass in the Appleton region in 1848.

The marker is located on northbound South Lutz Drive, just north of its intersection (a bend in the road) with west Cedar Street and south of the entrance to Lutz Park, Appleton, Wisconsin 54914.


A dangerously foggy day in Appleton at the time of my visit:


The marker is in the center of the snow, under the tree,
near the bend in the road where South Lutz Drive and
West Cedar Street intersect.

The marker is located at Lutz Park.
