Elizabeth Upham Davis and Caroline Upham Hughes recognized in Wisconsin 4-H Youth Development Hall of Fame

Elizabeth and Caroline Upham spent their childhood at their summer home outside of Wisconsin Dells. The sisters gave 310 forested acres, including 200 on Blackhawk Island, to the University of Wisconsin. They wrote, “These lands are to be used as an outdoor laboratory and camp for youth, such as 4-H clubs and other people cooperating with the University of Wisconsin in the advancement of conservation, of agriculture and rural culture.”
