A view of North Main Street

This photograph was taken of Main Street in Cuba City, facing north. The postcard was postmarked February 1912. The beautiful house on the left originally belonged to Matthew Hendricks, early Cuba City businessman and banker. It was later owned by Carl Wilberding. Steve's Pizza now occupies this location.

North of the Hendricks-Wilberding house was the home of William Pascoe, another early Cuba City businessman. These two lots were the site of the Western, a roadside inn built in the early 1850s, and the precursor to the settlement that would become Cuba City.
