Are you interested in the history of Presque Isle? Would you like to learn more?

Thank you to the Presque Isle Heritage Society for the following bit of history. If this piques your interest, consider joining the Presque Isle Heritage Society.
The river running through and alongside the town received the name "Presque Isle" when two French Priests were shipwrecked trying to cross Lake Superior. They survived the winter along the river banks. When spring’s high water levels arrived, they found themselves on "almost an island", or in French, "Presque Isle", earning the river and the town’s largest lake, their rightful name.

Presque Isle is a Bird City! Learn more here.
Do you own 10 or more acres? The Wisconsin DNR has a new program for monitoring wildlife with trail cameras! Find more information here.
