Riding the Logs Down Wisconsins First Highway, "The Riverman of the Wisconsin River" Mural

Being a great fan of local art, I often enjoy riding my bike through the downtown area of Stevenst Point where many small and large murals are painted depicting our history.

This gem is located on the corner of Water and Clark Streets,  in Downtown Stevens Point.

The Riverman Mural is a tribute to Stevens Point's strong logging heritage. 

Logging was one of the first large industries to build our state and today it still is, though we no longer use river power to move these important resources from the woods to the mills.

This is the first of the  series of murals and was
Completed in September 2004.

Good morning Bob,

Great murals and a recumbent bike.

From my readings it was a danderous job to perform.

Make yourself a great day.

Hi Bob - Very interesting bit of Wisconson history. Water power is still used in some places - not too many yaers ago, we had to circle Victoria harbor for a half hour in a seaplane waiting for a clearing in the logs so we could land.
