  • Historic Fire House No.2

    Stevens Point

    1949 Strongs Ave
    Stevens Point Wi. 54481
       In a letter dated Dec. 20, 2005 addressed to PCHS President Tim Siebert, Mary Ann Laszewski included a copy of a letter she had sent to Stevens Point Mayor Gary Wescott asking if the Southside Fire Station could be saved rather then demolished or sold off. This began a flurry of letter writing and inquires that resulted in the Historical Society being sold the building in March 2006 for $1.00.

  • Heritage Park


    The Heritage Park, located in Plover, bordered on the West by Madison St., on the East by Washington St., on the South by Willow Dr., and on the North by the Railroad tracks, is the result of Maurice Perret's and John Anderson's foresight in the late 1970's. They were responsible for the purchase of the Old Plover Methodist Church and two plots of land under the structure. In 1983 the board of the society purchased the other 6 lots in the park and moved the Franklin/Calkins House onto the site. Read more at: Heritage Park

  • Rising Star Mill


    The Nelsonville Mill is one of the oldest mills in this part of the state and the last of its kind in Portage County. On September 10, 1855, Jerome Nelson purchased land and water rights from Anna and Charles Stoltenberg on which to "construct and maintain a mill dam." Nelson, for whom Nelsonville is named, built the dam and sawmill in 1855. The Mill was built in 1868 upon his return from serving in the Civil War. The Mill was operated as a business until 1984. Of particular interest is the Woodward Governor turbine, which was ordered in 1917 for the Jackson Milling Company. Read more at: Rising Star Mill
