Stevens Point Historical Moment
Stevens Point was founded in 1858, during a time when the Wisconsin River was a major highway going from NE Wisconsin to the Mississippi River in SW Wisconsin.
The loggers traveling down the river floating logs used a grocery and supply store owned by George Stevens, on a sharp bend in the river as a convent spot for a landing.
A lot of things have happened in Stevens Point since then including the development of the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point College of natural resources which first brought Bob Crane here over 30 years ago.
I am still enjoying the developing history of this town, and suggest that if you get a chance, you should stop in to experience some of this developing history.
Enjoy your summer.
