Treasure on the Mississippi
Cassville is truly a treasure on the Mississippi! When Wisconsin achieved statehood in 1848, Cassville’s Nelson Dewey was elected first governor. Remains of his 2,000 acre estate are now Nelson Dewey State Park and Stonefield Historic Site. Enjoy the great outdoors at Nelson Dewey State Park with its spectacular views, hiking trails, Indian mounds & native prairie. The park has several trails totaling about 3 miles in length with nice views of the Mississippi River. Most have benches along the way so visitors can observe wildlife and birds. At the Roe Preserve there are native savannas and opportunities to birdwatch. Hunt, fish, boat or bike in our serene area.
