Schenks Corners - Atwood Ave. & Winnebago St.


Fred Schenk’s grocery store was on the corner of Atwood Avenue and Winnebago Street.

At one time Atwood Avenue was second only to Downtown in its number of shopping spots. In the days before shopping malls it was the only area outside of Downtown to have its own department store. In the 1970s traffic patterns were changed to route vehicles around the neighborhood (Eastwood Blvd).
