Stevens Point, Wisconsin

The theme was "Land, Logging, and Legends". Stevens Point is the county seat of Portage County and is located just west of an area that was heavily settled by Norwegian immigrants in the 1850s. Many of these immigrants spent the winter months in Wisconsin's lumber camps, known as pineries. Life in the pineries was not for the faint hearted, but Norwegian immigrants were accustomed to working in the forests.
