Inscription. This wooded site of 4.77 acres was purchased from Rudolph Puchner in 1915 for $2,500.00 by an organization of 12 women called the New Holstein Civic Society. Their purpose was to improve and beautify the city. Through diligent work and numerous fund-raising projects the cost was paid in full in 1921. The property was deeded to the city in 1941 for the benefit and pleasure of the public.
