Stevens Point

The POINT is to have a great get-a-way

The Stevens Point area, with its history as rich and diverse as the present community today, owes its namesake to George Stevens. After the signing of the 1836 Lumberman’s Treaty, a pact made with the Menominee Indians allowing logging and saw milling along the Wisconsin River, Stevens purchased a shack housing logging supplies. Unbeknownst to the business entrepreneur, he had just founded Stevens Point. By 1844 the first land entry was made for Stevens Point, becoming an established town by 1847, and by 1850 the logging community boasted a population of 200.
