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.

Morning again Bob.

Like I said previously, some of those needs to be in a museum.  The two you showed us today, just proves my point.

That's a nicely done mural and I appreciate your showing it to us.  A great way for some local artists to show their work and highlight some history of the area.

Good morning Bob Crane - I love this type of history and the mural is great.  In reality I am sure they weren't so clean and nicely dressed balancing those logs.
