Did you know that before it was “Presque Isle”, the town was named “Winegar”?

In 2018, we are going to combine new technology with historical facts, as we introduce visitors to the world-wide treasure hunt known as “Geocaching”. This is a wonderful family activity that allows people to get outside and enjoy nature, while still utilizing those electronic devices that so many of us depend on daily. If you are not familiar with Geocaching, go to “” on the internet, and see what all the excitement is about. The Presque Isle library also has books available to get you started.

In the spring, a series of geocaches will be placed throughout the township. These caches will highlight some of the people, places, and events that helped shape our village, from the logging and moonshining days of the 1920’s, through the tourist boom of the 50’s and 60’s, and beyond.

So, grab your smartphone, or GPS unit, and join us in Presque Isle. Hike, bike, explore, and learn some of the history behind “Wisconsin’s last Wilderness”!
