  I have been spending a lot of time in our Cadott office this month, doing some forestry work and some property management work.

 

  I thought it might be nice to give the folks in active rain land a taste of Cadott this week as well.

  Many like to think of Cadott as the little town that boasts of its location "half way between the equator and the north pole", I prefer to think of its namesake, the early French fur trader who started a trading post on the yellow river just north of town, close to my tree farm and office.

 

  Michel Cadotte was a French and Indian fur trader from Sault Ste. Marie and La Pointe who founded many trading centers with the Ojibwa Indians of Northern Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, and Ontario.cadott

 

  Cadott is a very nice little, friendly town with a lot going on including both a country music festival and a rock festival, both of which attract hundreds of big name musicians and thousands of fans.

 

  Cadott also has a very active Bohemian hall which was started by and still run by the hardy Bohemian pioneers who settled much of this area.

 

  But of course what Cadott is most famous for is the fact that 25 years ago Woodland Management Service located their Western Wisconsin office here.

Good morning Bob. I love getting the local history, like what you have described about Cadott. Kind of neat to have a town named after you.

History teacher, now that's a cool job!  Getting paid to learn and teach the stories of our past must be a lot of fun.

Bob- I too love learning about the history of all of our towns and cities.  I like the idea of the country music festival as well as the rock festival.
