Block History

     The 10800 block of Hoxie is typical of the architecture in early South Deering.  Most of the  residents were employed at nearby Wisconsin Steel.  The most common styles of housing were worker's cottages and two and three flats.  To the south are several industrial operations including the Interlake (later Acme) Steel Coke Plant.  Nearby to the south and also to the west are some wet land areas that are very popular with birders.
