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.
This is also the first of many murals that I will be featuring in the next few weeks, I hope that you enjoy the art too.
