• A framed limited edition print by David Wollangk called "The Council Tree". The giant elm, which marks and adorns the point beyond Riverside Park has, from the earliest times, been known as the "Council Tree" or "Treaty Elm". The crown of the tree was so enormous that it was used as a navigational guide for boat pilots on Lake Winnebago, and pioneer weddings were held beneath its branches. The tree came down more than a century ago to allow for a new channel in the Fox River. This print was commissioned by the family of Marigen Carpenter in honor of her tenure as mayor of Neenah from 1982-1998. The original hangs in Neenah City Hall.
