Having only begun letterboxing in August of 2002, I was not around when letterboxing began in Wisconsin in 1998.  As best as I can tell, most of the first letterboxes in Wisconsin were planted by college students in Green Bay and Madison.  When they left college, they left their letterboxes and letterboxing in general.  Unfortunately, by the time I began letterboxing, a number of Wisconsin letterboxes had disappeared.

With the updates to the LBNA website in 2004 many of these boxes also became unclaimed, although a few were adopted.  I adopted the remaining ones whether the boxes were still active or not.  Some clues however, were lost before I could copy them.

This site is dedicated to the lost and abandoned Wisconsin letterboxes to keep them alive at least in our memories.  Listed below are the letterboxes that fall into one of these two categories along with their status.  For your amusement, I have also replicated the old LBNA website format of the clue pages for these boxes wherever possible.  Please come back to this site often to note any updates that may occur, as my intent is to replace as many of the boxes as I can.

If you are the original owner* of any of these boxes, have any information about their history, or original stamp images of these boxes, please contact me.  If you know of any historical Wisconsin boxes that are not in this list or the current LBNA site please let me know. Eventually, I would like to also turn this page into a recorded history of letterboxing in Wisconsin.  Any history you can send me to add to this site is very welcome!


*I'll be very happy to give any of these boxes back to their original owners upon request.  I have only adopted these boxes for upkeep and historical means and do not count them among my planted boxes.
