Stevens Point Wisconsin, I love this town, and so will you!Sara disc golfing in Point

   I first came to this town over 30 years ago when I started college here.

     It was a culture shock for me coming from a rural farm near a small town of 800 people.  At the time it seemed like a much larger metropolis than it seems to be today.

     After 6 years of college I grew to love the city of Point and hated to leave to start my career, but everybody has to grow up and leave sometime.

   A decade after starting my Forestry Consulting Company in Western Wisconsin, I was looking to expand and what better place than the home of the largest and most prestigious Forestry school in the country, UW Stevens Point, and the place that I had grown to love so much when I was a student there.sign in the squaire in Stevens Point

     So my wife found a new and better teaching job near Point and I left my top forester in charge at my Cadott office and headed off to Stevens Point to expand the business.

   Some things had changed since I was in college but not the important things.

     It is still predominantly a college town, with all the youth and energy that a college town inspires.

     It is still the best place I have ever lived for biking both around town and on the 40 mile green circle trail that circles around the perimeter of the city.

     There are many wonderful Churches in town, most within easy walking distance.

     It has an old polish culture, which I have always found to be very welcoming, friendly and family oriented.

     It has an old historic downtown area with many of interesting shops.  And a town square which has transformed from the place of taverns when I was in college and the drinking age was lower to a vibrant farmers’ market, shops and the city fountain.art on the square in Stevens Point

   There are far too many great things about Point to mention in one blog entry, but after all these years it is still my favorite little city of all the hundreds of cities that I have visited or lived in.

Good morning Bob,

It is always nice to be from a small community and not have the hustle and bustle.

Good morning, Bob -- I'd say Richie Alan Naggar author of books on Life-Love-Intimacy-Purpose sums up my feelings quite well --- you have created a post about Stevens Point that epitomizes home for you.  And that's a good - a very good - thing.
