This button promotes the Oconomowoc-Milwaukee-Road Association in Wisconsin. The Association raised funds for the construction and improvement of the main highway in Waukesha County, Wisconsin. The highway was the main artery that connected Milwaukee County and Goerke’s Corner, which saw heavy traffic and needed repair. The project had strong start in 1912 and garnered many supporters and funding.  However, interest dwindled as years passed, and Waukesha County could not allocate enough funds to support the project.
