A City's New Horizon is the 2nd video in the Centennial Trilogy. A City's New Horizon is a more in-depth video covering Waukesha in the 1850s, from the first plane in Waukesha to the turn of the 19th century.

To get a better understanding of Waukesha's past, channel 25 interviewed more people, uncovered more stories and recreated New Year's Eve, 1899.
