Dark La Crosse Stories Episode 48: Red Light District

From the Dark La Crosse Stories: Series chronicles our city's nefarious history series

Red Light District

Silhouettes can be seen in the windows above The Pearl, referring to the building's early days when it served as part of a "red light district" in La Crosse, a home for sex work.

You may visit this now family-friendly block to get ice cream and sweets, but it has a sordid history in La Crosse.

Watch and listen to the latest Dark La Crosse Stories episode here:

The Dark La Crosse Stories series is made possible by a partnership between the La Crosse Public Library and the La Crosse Tribune. For a link to past episodes, click here.

Only two episodes remain (for now) of Dark La Crosse Stories. The episodes will feature a two-part story on a woman in La Crosse's history who was known by locals to keep to herself after her husband died under suspicious circumstances. The two episodes will air on back-to-back Tuesdays on Sept. 20 & 27.
